Diffuse autoimmune pancreatitis. A. Axial CT image in the pancreatic parenchymal phase shows the typical enlarged, poorly enhancing gland (arrow). Note the lack of inflammatory change around the organ which differentiates the disease from acute pancreatitis with necrosis. B. Coronal T2 Weighted MR image demonstrates low signal intensity in the pancreas (arrow) due to the diffuse fibrosis in the gland. C. Coronal MRCP image depicts a diffusely irregular pancreatic duct with stenosis distally in the pancreatic head (arrow). D. ERCP confirms the MR findings including the ductal stenosis (arrow).
