IgG4 Disease and Zen: Is There Another Association?

Stone, MD; Antoine G. Sreih, MD; and Corey Perugino, DO.As practitioners, it is not often that we are privileged to witness the evolution of a new disease construct within the timeframe of few years. Think about it. Aside from notable environmental diseases caused by exposures, such as nephrogenic systemic fibrosis, a byproduct of the era of MRI which I have had the wonder to observe during my career, it is uncommon to unravel prior disease constructs into a new way of thinking so rapidly.
