Abstract

We report on a patient with chronic calcific pancreatitis associated with Waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia, and we have hypothesized a possible relationship between these two entities. The hyper viscosity of serum in Waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia may he associated with a viscous pancreatic juice that leads to stone formation.
