Lancet. 1975 Mar 8;1(7906):550-2. doi: 10.1016/s0140-6736(75)91560-3.

Abstract

A new syndrome of chronic pancreatitis, sclerosing cholangitis, sicca complex, and other features was found in a brother and sister. Leucocyte-migration inhibition in the presence of a bile antigen in both patients suggested that immune mechanisms may be involved.
