Abstract

Juxtapapillary duodenal diverticula and their possible complications are not frequent findings. We present the case of a woman with a giant juxtapapillary diverticulum, complicated by diverticulitis and areas of perforation of the wall that required urgent surgical treatment. We present the preoperative findings on computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging.
