Abstract: OBJECTIVES: The objective of this study was to evaluate the International Consensus Diagnostic Criteria (ICDC) for type 1 autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) in comparison with the Japanese criteria 2011 (JPS2011). METHODS: We retrospectively investigated the usefulness of ICDC in comparison with JPS2011 in 64 patients with AIP and 90 patients with pancreatic cancer. RESULTS: The sensitivity and specificity of ICDC for AIP were 98.4% (63/64) and 100% (90/90), respectively. The sensitivities and specificities of ductal imaging, serology, other organ involvement, and pancreatic histology were 74.1%, 89.1%, 53.1%, and 26.1% and 94.7%, 94.5%, 100%, and 100%, respectively. On the other hand, the sensitivities and specificities of JPS2011 for AIP were 84.4% (54/64) and 100% (90/90), respectively. The condition of all the 10 patients who were deniable or possible under the JPS2011 could be diagnosed as definitive AIP under the ICDC. The sensitivities and specificities of Japanese criteria 2006, Asian Diagnostic Criteria, and HISORt criteria were 80.6%, 84.4%, and 92.2% and 95.8%, 87.8%, and 100%, respectively. CONCLUSIONS: The sensitivity and specificity of ICDC are higher than those of previous criteria. The JPS2011 is easy to handle for general practice, and specificity is very high. However, the sensitivity of JPS2011 is lower than that of ICDC, and improvement of sensitivity is to be hoped in the future.
