Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD) is a very common paediatric disorder and the majority of patients are treated successfully by primary care physicians. Two infants aged 2 months with GORD which did not respond to conventional medical management are reported; they were diagnosed with duodenum inversum. The first infant failed medical management and required Nissen's fundoplication to control his symptoms. The second infant improved on maximizing medical management without the need for a surgical procedure...

Duodenum inversum is a rare congenital malformation defined by a duodenum which travels superiorly and then posteriorly prior to crossing the midline above the pancreas. It is often confused with other, more common, anomalies of intestinal rotation. We present a case of duodenum inversum diagnosed incidentally in a one-month old infant with Trisomy 21 during evaluation for reflux disease. Due to an inability to definitively rule out malrotation, the diagnosis was confirmed with a diagnostic laparoscopy. We discuss available literature concerning this rare anatomic anomaly as well as provide recommendations for diagnosis and treatment...

BACKGROUND: Duodenum inversum is an often unrecognized anomaly of duodenal rotation/fixation at upper gastrointestinal (UGI) contrast study because the duodenojejunal junction appears normally located. OBJECTIVE: This anomaly is important to diagnose because it may result in obstructive gastrointestinal symptoms. CONCLUSION: We describe a case of duodenum inversum mimicking superior mesenteric artery (SMA) syndrome that improved after surgical therapy...

PURPOSE: To analyze difficult diagnostic cases of malrotation to identify features crucial to accurate diagnosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The authors reviewed the radiographs and records of 81 symptomatic children who underwent surgery with a preoperative diagnosis of malrotation. Eleven had subtle rotational abnormalities (potential false-negative examinations), and 12 had false-positive upper gastrointestinal examinations. RESULTS: Subtle signs of malrotation included unusual redundancy of the duodenum to the right of the spine and location of the duodenojejunal junction (DJJ) medial to the left pedicle...

Duodenum inversum is usually associated with chronic abdominal pain which is of unknown etiology. Incomplete rotation of the bowel may be associated with this anomaly. An unusually high incidence of pancreatitis, elevated bilirubin, and hypoalbuminemia was noted in this series of nine patients.
