Abstract

in English, Spanish

IgG4-related disease is an inflammatory condition characterized by high levels of IgG4. It affects salivary and lacrimal glands, pancreas, lymph nodes, lungs or kidney. The diagnosis is based on identifying a histological pattern with a dense lymphocyte and plasmacyte infiltration, focal fibrosis or phlebitis, finding more than 10 IgG4 positive cells per high power field and/or IgG4/IgG ratio in plasma higher than 40%. We present a patient with Mikulicz's disease who meets histological findings required for the diagnosis of IgG4 related disease.
