Abstract: Paraduodenal pancreatitis is a distinct clinicopathological entity involving the duodenum and the pancreatic tissue in the vicinity of the minor papilla. Most afflicted patients are young alcoholic males who present clinically with upper abdominal pain, weight loss, nausea, and vomiting. Pancreatic tissue elements in the duodenal wall and impedance to exocrine pancreatic secretions at the minor papilla are key factors in the pathogenesis of this condition. On imaging, the condition may manifest as a solid fibrotic mass around the minor papilla or as cysts in the duodenum and the pancreaticoduodenal groove. Duodenal stenosis, biliary strictures, chronic calcifying pancreatitis, and pancreatic ductal dilatation are also often observed.
