Duodenal tumor is relatively rare disease, accounting for about 0.3% of all carcinomas of the gastrointestinal tract. Although radiological and endoscopic examinations have become popular, we are not so familiar with the duodenal tumors as those of the other gastrointestinal tumors. The absence of precise symptoms and the rarity of primary malignant neoplasms in this localization are frequently the reason for the late diagnosis. And so, often the true nature and localization of the tumor are only determined during surgery or autopsy. But, recently, duodenal bulb is examined with ease and pathologic diagnosis is possible following the diffusion of panendoscopy. We have experienced three cases of primary duodenal bulb carcinoma, which diagnosed by biopsies with gastrofibroscopic endoscopy. So we report the cases with a brief review of literature.
Key Words: Adenocarcinoma of duodenal bulb
