There is a large body of literature that describes the short-term complications (e.g., pancreatic or biliary anastomotic leaks) that occur after PD, but little has been published regarding long-term anastomotic complications. Stenosis of the anastomosis is often asymptomatic but symptomatic and painful presentations are difficult to treat, and the optimal treatment is not currently defined. The aim of this work is to report case of pancreatojejunostomy stenosis. The Pancreatic enteric anastomosis stenosis was diagnosed following presentation with pancreatitis that developed following pancreatoduodenectomy. The patient was treated surgically by fashioning side to side pancreatogastrostomy.
