Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a disorder of exocrine gland function of which the gene mutation has been existing for thousands of years. With recent medical advances, neonates presently affected have a life expectancy of 40 years. The common gastrointestinal presentations of CF patients, including pancreatic, hepatobiliary, and bowel manifestations, are thus important to recognize.

CONCLUSION:

Gastrointestinal manifestations of CF are varied yet common and thus increasingly important to recognize. The sonographic, CT, and MRI abdominal findings in older children and adults with CF are presented.
