Thank you for the presentation of the rather elegant radiology and thoughtful work up. The story is intriguing and I have never heard of anything like this before. It seems inflammatory (non autoimmune) is the only explanation. The convalescent MRCP showed also resolution of the mass in the pancreatic head? No mass seen on EUS either? Has a radiologist commented on the reasons for this?
Normal amylase is reported in some toxin associated pancreatitis and in hyperlipidaemias (triglyceridaemias) also. Would you mind letting me know if genetic panel helps with a diagnosis (I presume you refer to the familial pancreatitis panel?)?
Finally, the imaging of the convalescent post stent removal pancreatic duct imaging may be important? Is there a rare duct anomally that has been missed by the acute inflammation i.e. ansa pancreatica?
