Exocrine and Endocrine Morphologic Changes in Chronic Pancreatitis

  • V. Becker
Conference paper


Chronic pancreatitis is a mild inflammation of the pancreas which is determined by the substances secreted by the pancreas. It is characterized by chronicity, by relapsing attacks of pain and pathologically anatomically by severe loss of parenchyma and massive scarring. The decisive ethiologic factor is the chronic abuse of alcohol — this was discovered by our chairman Prof. Henri Sarles more than 30 years ago [4].
