Abstract

Isolated pancreatic involvement is a rare initial presentation in patients with ANCA-associated vasculitis. We report a patient with a suspected malignant pancreatic mass, referred to our hospital for pancreaticoduodenectomy. However, the pancreatic mass proved to be the initial manifestation of ANCA-associated vasculitis.
