Annular pancreas

What is an annular pancreas?

An annular pancreas is a rare congenital anomaly of the pancreas, where pancreatic tissue partially or completely surrounds the second portion of the duodenum. On cross-sectional imaging, pancreatic parenchyma will be seen to encircle the duodenum, sometimes with associated duodenal luminal narrowing.

Sometimes, there may be associated duodenal obstruction.
