Abstract

Hereditary pancreatitis is a clinical condition in which typical pancreatitis is associated with an inheritance pattern strongly suggestive of an autosomal dominant trait. Different variants have been described, some with aminoaciduria and some with ductal anomalies. Recurrent attacks are typical and lead to complications more often than in the idiopathic variety. Pancreatic enzyme supplements or antioxidants may help reduce the frequency and/or severity of attacks.
