Abstract

We report the second patient diagnosed with autoimmune pancreatitis complicated with autoimmune thrombocytopenia and interstitial pneumonia. The patient was treated with prednisolone and responded favorably. We demonstrated that anti-platelet (PLT) antibody of the patient was IgG4 and that it may react with HLA, not specific antigen, on both pancreas and PLT.
