Abstract

Introduction: Wilkie’s syndrome is a rare disorder causing obstruction to the third part of duodenum due to acute angulation of superior mesenteric artery. It’s a rare but surgically curable cause of duodenal obstruction. Case report: We present a case of 19year old male patient with chronic pain abdomen and vomiting which was correlated to obstruction of duodenum due to acute angulation of superior mesenteric artery on CECT abdomen. Patient’s symptoms were dramatically improved following duodenojejunostomy. Conclusion: Wilkie’s syndrome is more prevalent and underdiagnosed. Surgery is the treatment of choice.
