Reduced 25-OH-Vitamin D Levels in Patients with Chronic Autoimmune Atrophic Gastritis Abstract #1289

Introduction: Chronic atrophic autoimmune gastritis (CAAG) is characterized by parietal cells disruption leading to hypochlorhydria and vitamin B12 malabsorption. An increased risk of osteoporosis was reported in patients with long-standing hypochlorhydria. Only few studies reported a possible association between CAAG and 25OHVitamin D (25OHvitD) deficiency.
Aim(s): To evaluate the prevalence of 25OHvitD deficiency in CAAG.
Materials and methods: From 2012 to 2015, 25OHVitD and calcium were measured in all the CAAG patients followed at our Centre. Results were compared with a group of 1234 subjects (958 F; median age 62 yrs). Subjects with abnormal calcium values, known VitD supplementation, primary hyperparathyroidism or renal failure were excluded.

#1042 The Challenge of Differential Diagnosis of Solid Pancreatic Lesions in Von Hippel-Lindau. Case Report
Introduction: Von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) is an hereditary syndrome, characterized by a predisposition to develop benign and malignant tumors. Pancreatic involvement is present in 35-70% of cases and include cystic (simple cyst, serous cystoadenoma, mucinous tumor or IPMN) and solid lesions (neuroendocrine neoplasm (NEN), metastatic mass or pancreatic adenocarcinoma). Finally, a solid-type serous cystoadenoma (SSCA) has been reported. Differential diagnosis of these lesions may be difficult.
