This case report presents a young woman who underwent a Whipples resection for a large pan-creato-duodenal tumour. Pathology and immunohistochemical analysis of the tumour suggest duodenal fibrosarcoma. The patient's postoperative management was complicated by chylous ascites. A brief literature review is given to highlight this unusual case.
