Gastrointestinal duplications causing relapsing pancreatitis in children.
Lavine JE, Harrison M, Heyman MB
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.
