ABSTRACT
Chronic pancreatitis characterized by an early onset should be extensively investigated including the search for a mutation of the PRSS1, SPINK-1 or CFTR genes and potential features of autoimmune pancreatitis. We here describe a case of chronic pancreatitis with an onset at a very young age in which a mutation of the PRSS1 and several features of autoimmune pancreatitis were identified.
