Metastatic Adenocarcinoma Arising from Fibrocalcific Pancreatic Diabetes
AbstractFibrocalcific pancreatic diabetes (FCPD) is a rare form of ketosis-resistant diabetes in the young (15 to 40 years old) of unknown etiology. It has been observed in tropical and subtropical countries with highest incidence in south India, and is believed to have some association with tropical chronic pancreatitis, malnutrition, toxin exposure (e.g., cassava) and SPINK1 mutation. It is associated with a hundredfold increased risk of pancreatic cancer compared to the general population
