Abstract

Type 1 autoimmune pancreatitis is a rarely diagnosed IgG4-related disorder that is associated with characteristic clinical and histologic findings. While it primarily affects the pancreas and biliary tract, it can also affect other organs including the kidneys. We report a case of a 65-year-old male diagnosed with autoimmune pancreatitis and renal lesions successfully managed with a course of steroids with near complete resolution of lesions after two months of therapy.
