Autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) was first described in 1961 and represents a rare form of immune mediated chronic pancreatitis, which is characterized by specific histological findings. Diagnostic imaging plays a critical role in the diagnosis of the disease, which in a proportion of patients may affect multiple organs, as part of the IgG4-related disease spectrum. This video provide an overview of the current understanding into this interesting disease as well as offering various “tips and tricks” to help with a confident radiological diagnosis.
