Abstract

Objectives: Autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) represents a complex immune-mediated pancreas disorder. Pediatric AIP (P-AIP) is rare. We have recently summarized the characteristic features of P-AIP. We now aim to develop recommendation statements to standardize the diagnostic and therapeutic approach to P-AIP and facilitate future research in the field. Methods: A panel of pediatric gastroenterologists participating in the International Study Group of Pediatric Pancreatitis: In search for a cuRE was formedtodiscussandthenvoteon15recommendationstatements.Aconsensusof atleast80%wasobtainedfollowing3votingroundsandrevisionofthestatements. Results: We have now generated 15 statements to help standardize the approach to diagnosis and management of P-AIP. Conclusions: The first P-AIP recommendation statements developed by the International Study Group of Pediatric Pancreatitis: In search for a cuRE group are intended to bring standardization to the diagnosis and treatment of this rare childhood disorder. These statements may help guide a uniform approach to patient care and facilitate future research studies.
