Autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) represents a rare form of chronic pancreatitis, which can be associated with other autoimmune diseases. In 20-30% of patients with ductocentric AIP, concurrent inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), more frequently ulcerative colitis (UC), are described. This finding can mimic a malignant tumour of the pancreas and was incorrectly indicated for surgical therapy in the past. Very good response to corticosteroids therapy is characteristic feature for this type of AIP. The authors reported a case of a 37-year old woman with Crohn's disease in whom ductocentric AIP was diagnosed with good and prompt response to corticosteroids therapy.
