Abstract

Although segmental bowel necrosis is a recognized complication of pancreatitis, the duodenum is rarely involved. We report a unique case of acute duodenal obstruction characterized by transmural necrosis and intramural duodenal haematoma in a young man with acute alcohol-induced pancreatitis. The patient recovered following pancreaticoduodenectomy.
