Abstract

In order to detect early pancreatic changes in chronic alcoholism, we reviewed pancreatograms (ERP) in 35 patients with alcoholic chronic liver disease who had no clinical evidence of pancreatitis. The patients were grouped by the length of history of alcohol intake (group 1: 5-15 years; group 2: more than 15 years), and on the basis of daily alcohol intake (group 1: 100-150 g/day; group 2: 150-200 g/day; group 3: more than 200 g/day). Pancreatic changes were present at ERP in 48.6% of patients, suggesting mild pancreatitis in 15 patients and advanced pancreatitis in two. Pancreatic lesions were significantly more frequent (p
