Duodenal varices is a rare entity and it is ectopic varices of which duodenal varices comprise 2-5% of all varices. It is very difficult to diagnose even after repeated doing OGD due to difficult position as mucosal and sub mucosal. As it is due with pulmonary hypertension may be associated with cirrhosis of liver and many times due to severe bleeding may land to rise of blood urea and systemic acidosis at that time it becomes very difficult to manage. Teatment A clipping of the varices B. Sclerotherapy C some time when bleeding become uncontrollable segmental duodenectomy may be required.

Thanks Dr Dinesh Gupta.
