 en Pancreas-sparing duodenectomy for leiomyoma of the third part of duodenum: A case report
Yadav TD, Sinha Surajit , Kaushik Robin

Abstract

Leiomyomas are benign neoplasms of smooth muscle that are rarely seen in the duodenum. They are usually asymptomatic and detected incidentally either on routine radiological investigations or at laparotomy or on autopsy. We present the case of a patient with leiomyoma arising from the third part of the duodenum who underwent pancreas-sparing duodenectomy for removal of the tumour.

Keywords
