Exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI) is a condition that results in the inability to digest food properly. This can understandably cause significant distress for patients, who often present with unexpected symptoms. The etiology of this disorder is not as simple as one might expect, extending to causes outside the pancreas itself.

How well do you know the causes, signs, and proper diagnostic techniques for EPI? Test yourself with this short quiz, and see how your knowledge compares with that of your colleagues.
