Abstract

Pancreatitis due to Crohn's disease of the duodenum is very rare. It is the result of either reflux of duodenal content into the pancreatic duct or stenosis due to direct involvement of the ampullary region with Crohn's disease. The patient described had isolated Crohn's disease of the duodenum; pancreatitis was the result of persimmon bezoar's constricting the ampullary region.
