Abstract

Double pylorus is a rare disease. It is described by a double communication between the gastric antrum and the duodenal bulb. The cause of double pylorus is either a congenital abnormality or an acquired condition. It is believed to be mostly a complication of peptic ulcer disease. Most reports revealed conditions only for the gastric antrum. However, case reports describing the involvement of the gastric body are extremely rare. Herein, we report a case of a double pylorus that developed on the gastric body and we present a review of the literature.
