Abstract

Pancreatitis is one of the presentations of pancreas divisum. Endoscopic treatment by dorsal pancreatic duct stenting relieves symptoms in a majority of patients. We report a patient with pancreas divisum and calcific chronic pancreatitis in whom successful drainage of the dorsal duct with a stent through the minor papilla relieved the pain.
