Nodular (specific) intercapillary glomerulosclerosis (Kimmelstiel-Wilson) was found at autopsy in a 47-year-old man who had been diabetic for 20 years. The family history for this disease had been negative. Both the clinical course and the autopsy findings strongly suggest that this patient's diabetes was secondary to chronic fibrocalcific pancreatitis. This is only the fourth recorded case of histologically documented nodular glomerulosclerosis occurring in a patient with pancreatogenic diabetes.
