Controversy exists as to whether or not duodenitis alone can cause peptic ulcer symptoms. A modified provocation perfusion test has been performed in 10 symptomatic patients with duodenitis confirmed by endoscopy and histology. The test was conducted without the patient being aware of whether 0.1 N hydrocholoric acid, normal saline, or 8.5% sodium bicarbonate was being perfused directly on the area of duodenitis through the endoscopic irrigation cannula at a fixed rate of 10 ml/min for 10 min. The test was also performed in eight patients with dyspepsia alone and in five patients with chronic duodenal ulceration. Intraduodenal infusion of acid reproduced the epigastric pain in all patients with peptic duodenitis and duodenal ulcer patients, including the feeling of nausea in several which was partially relieved by bicarbonate infusion. In patients with dyspepsia but no peptic duodenitis, the symptoms were not reproduced. It would appear that "peptic duodenitis" can cause symptoms and that this "pain provocation test" may prove useful in its diagnosis.
