Abstract

Chronic pancreatitis is uncommon in children and adolescents. A rare syndrome of idiopathic fibrosing pancreatitis has been reported in 28 patients, ages 4 months to 17 yr. We report two young adults with this syndrome who presented with obstructive jaundice. Both were seen in adult gastroenterology practice, and one is the oldest reported patient at age 20. We review the clinical features, diagnosis, and treatment of this disorder, which merits attention by adult gastroenterologists.
