Chronic pancreatitis is a challenging condition that affects the pancreas, causing inflammation, fibrosis, and loss of function. It can lead to various complications, such as abdominal pain, malabsorption, diabetes, and pancreatic cancer. The causes of chronic pancreatitis are diverse, but the most common ones are alcohol abuse, smoking, and genetic mutations. The diagnosis and management of chronic pancreatitis require a multidisciplinary approach, involving imaging tests, blood tests, pain assessment, enzyme replacement therapy, and sometimes surgery. In this editorial article, I will review the current evidence and guidelines on the etiology, diagnosis, and treatment of chronic pancreatitis, and highlight some of the gaps and challenges in this field.
