Abstract

Duodenal cancers are the most rare neoplasms of the digestive duct. Every time when we suspect primary duodenal neoplasm, we should consider the possibility, that in fact it is a neoplasm of a different origin site, secondarily infiltrating the duodenum. We present a case of cancer of the hepatic flexure of the colon, accompanied by a colo-duodenal fistula, infiltrating the duodenum, which could be misdiagnosed as duodenal cancer.
