Özet

Background/Aims: A relation between some genetic mutations and chronic pancreatitis (CP) has been reported. However, the relation of genetic mutation to alcoholic CP (ACP) and idiopathic CP (ICP) still remains controversial. In this study, we investigated the prevalence of protease serine 1 (PRSS1), serine protease inhibitor, Kazal type 1 (SPINK1) SPINK1 and cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) mutations in ACP and ICP patients in Turkey.
