Comparison of patients with pancreatitis and neoplasm underlying pancreatic panniculitis (a-c): a Patients with neoplastic conditions are significantly older than patients with pancreatitis (66.0 +/− 13.0 years vs. 44.7 +/− 20.5 years, p < 0.001). b Underlying malignancy is diagnosed significantly later than underlying pancreatitis (134 +/− 135 days vs. 20 +/− 26 days, p < 0.001). c Tumor patients have significantly higher lipase levels than pancreatitis patients (16611 +/− 20772 vs. 5324 +/− 14436 U/l, p < 0.01). d Kaplan-Meier plot of survival after appearance of the first panniculitis lesion in patients with pancreatic panniculitis associated with malignancy. Median survival is 4.75 months (n = 29)
