Abstract

Combined gastric and pancreatic duplications are uncommon. Although patients usually present with symptoms of intestinal obstruction, gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding may occur if the duplication ulcerates and erodes into a neighboring hollow viscus. An upper GI series and barium enema are helpful in making a diagnosis. Combined duplications probably are produced during embryologic development by traction along a neuroenteric band between the stomach and pancreas. Simple surgical excision is the treatment of choice.
