Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Duodenal duplication cysts are rare congenital anomalies that can cause acute pancreatitis. Pancreas divisum is also a congenital anomaly, often discovered incidentally, but is considered a possible cause of acute pancreatitis. We report the case of the combination of both anomalies causing recurrent episodes of acute pancreatitis in a young man. Endoscopic treatment by partial excision of the cyst with a polypectomy snare and sphincterotomy of the minor papilla was successful.
