KeywordsFat, pancreas, lipomatous pseudohypertrophy
Lipomatous pseudohypertrophy (LPH) of the pancreas is an uncommon affection of exocrine pancreatic insufficiency. It is defined as substitution of the pancreatic exocrine gland by a large fat component.

Computed tomography revealed characteristic diffuse pancreatic abnormalities.
