Aastha Agnihotri | Upender Kumar Chandel

Abstract: This article delves into the rare congenital anomaly known as annular pancreas, characterised by the encasement of the duodenum by pancreatic tissue during embryogenesis. While often asymptomatic, a subset of individuals may experience clinical manifestations. This study presents a case report of a 60 - year - old male with gastric outlet obstruction due to annular pancreas, detailing the diagnostic journey and successful modified Kimura operation. The rarity of this condition in adults is explored, highlighting the significance of advancements in diagnostic imaging techniques for accurate identification and management.
