Abstract
Duodenal diverticulitis is difficult to diagnose because it can mimic other common diseases such as cholecystitis and perforated ulcer. Recently, we experienced a rare case of duodenal diverticulitis that was initially suspected on abdominal computed tomography as focal pancreatitis. Although duodenal diverticulitis has been increasingly recognizable before surgery, with the advent of multi-detector computed tomography, misdiagnosis remains problematic since duodenal diverticulitis is commonly not considered in the differential diagnosis of acute abdominal pain. We have to consider this rare disease entity because delayed diagnosis might be a cause of substantial morbidity and mortality. (Korean J Gastrointest Endosc 2010;41:294-297)
