As more data were gathered on AIP across the world, the diagnostic criteria shifted [10,73–75]. Several centers reported segmental narrowing of the 250 KRASINSKAS, RAINA, KHALID, ET AL main pancreatic duct, in addition to cases with diffuse narrowing. With the discovery that AIP is an IgG4-related disease, IgG4 levels were incorporated into the diagnostic criteria. Knowing that AIP is responsive to steroid therapy, unlike other forms of pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer, some centers incorporated the response to steroid therapy as a diagnostic criterion.
