Two cases of children with relapsing pancreatitis due to intramural gastrointestinal duplications with ductal communication to the pancreas are reported. A gastric duplication with ectopic pancreatic tissue was detected by endoscopic cholangiopancreatography in the gastric antrum of a 6-yr-old girl. A periampullary duodenal duplication was visualized preoperatively by duodenoscopy and computed tomography in a 10-yr-old boy. Resection of the duplication was curative in each case.
