Abstract

Duodenum inversum is a rare congenital anomaly of unknown etiology whereby the duodenum travels superiorly to the level of the duodenal bulb and then posteriorly prior to crossing the midline above the pancreas. We describe the first pediatric case of duodenum inversum presenting as partial proximal intestinal obstruction that was medically managed without surgical intervention.
