Fibrocalculous pancreatic diabetes in the elderly.


Fibrocalculous pancreatic diabetes (FCPD) is a form of diabetes seen in tropical countries. It is secondary to chronic, calcific, non-alcoholic pancreatitis. FCPD is usually a disease of youth. This paper reports on two elderly onset cases of FCPD. Macrovascular complications are usually rare in FCPD patients. These two patients had evidence of macrovascular diseases probably due to the older age group of the patients.
