There are two distinct congenital anomalies of the pancreas-annular pancreas and pancreas divisum-both of which have the potential to manifest in infancy with symptoms that are taken to indicate duodenal blockage. However, symptoms such as stomach discomfort, postprandial fullness, and pancreatitis may not appear until maturity. An annular pancreatic divisum that required duodenopancreatectomyin a 32-year-old woman with a history of hyperthyroidism treated with carbimazole was admitted in our department. The MRCP was important in making the accurate diagnosis. This article describes the symptoms and potential treatments for annular pancreas divisum.
