Subhash Goyal, Arshad Rashid, Rekha Goyal, Ravish Aneja

Abstract
Duodenum Inversum is a rare congenital anomaly that can produce symptoms due to gastric outlet obstruction. We report a case of a 56-year man who presented with features of delayed gastric emptying owing to duodenum inversum, which was managed successfully by prokinetic agents. The diagnostic modalities and management strategies are presented and the relevant literature has been reviewed.
