IgG4-Related Disease - IgG4-RD

IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is a newly recognized fibroinflammatory disorder that affects multiple organ systems. Clinical presentation is dependent on the organs involved (eg, pancreas, salivary and lacrimal glands, periorbital tissue, kidneys, and aorta). Type 1 autoimmune pancreatitis is now known to be IgG4-related. Diagnosis is generally based on history, physical findings, imaging, and laboratory results supported by histopathology (Khosrahshahi, 2015).
