Abstract The ultimate reason why pancreatologists have strived to establish definitions for inflammatory pathologies of the pancreas is to improve patient care. Although the Atlanta Classification has been used for around for 17 years, considerable misunderstanding of the key elements of the nomenclature still persists. While a recent article by Stamatakos et al aimed to deal with an entity not clearly defined in the 1993 document, it is replete with factual and conceptual errors as well as contradictory statements.
