The present communication relates to the diagnosis of diseases of the pancreas. In it are reviewed the procedures and methods proposed as diagnostic aids and their status discussed.
Pancreatic disease has usually been considered as of infrequent occurrence. Cammidge (1) was one of the first to question its infrequency. In 1911 he wrote as follows: "Since 1900 it has been gradually recognized that chronic pancreatitis is a much more common disease than had been formerly supposed, but even yet there is a tendency to regard it as of theoretical rather than practical interest. This is far from being the case.
