Abdominal manifestations of cystic fibrosis in older children and adults.
AJR Am J Roentgenol. 2006 Nov; 187(5):1199-203.AA

Abstract

OBJECTIVE

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a disorder of exocrine gland function of which the gene mutation has been existing for thousands of years. With recent medical advances, neonates presently affected have a life expectancy of 40 years. The common gastrointestinal presentations of CF patients, including pancreatic, hepatobiliary, and bowel manifestations, are thus important to recognize.

CONCLUSION

Gastrointestinal manifestations of CF are varied yet common and thus increasingly important to recognize. The sonographic, CT, and MRI abdominal findings in older children and adults with CF are presented.
