Abstract

Intraluminal duodenal diverticulum is a rare congenital anomaly consisting of a saclike projection within the duodenum. Small diverticula may be asymptomatic; however, when these enlarge, patients may develop recurrent episodes of pain, obstruction, or pancreatitis. Normally, the diagnosis is made by barium luminal examination. We report a case where the findings were seen on computed tomography and confirmed by upper gastrointestinal series.
