Abstract

We reviewed the radiographic and pathologic findings in 2 patients with primary adenocarcinoma of the duodenal bulb. Barium studies provided important information, characterizing the nature and extent of the lesion, as well as complete evaluation of the descending and horizontal segments of the duodenum before surgical therapy. Early endoscopy is recommended for nonhealing duodenal ulcers, especially if suggestive malignant changes are present.
