The next most likely point is the duodenal end of the common duct.
The diagnosis of duodenal ulcer from gastric ulcer will be discussed elsewhere.
Indigestible food and an excess of starchy or fatty food conduce to disorder of duodenal digestion.
The careworn face with lines about the mouth and forehead is one of the plainest signs of duodenal defect.
The pylorus and two-thirds of the duodenal mucous membrane were much inflamed and the orifice of the bile-duct closed.
If these symptoms follow an extensive burn of the skin, they are easily referred to a duodenal ulcer.
Duodenal like gastric ulcers are attended with the liability to hemorrhage and perforation in equal if not greater degree.
It is not unlikely that in the cases of duodenal cancer the new growth extended from the pylorus.
Catarrh of the duodenal mucous membrane is the initial condition, and from thence the process extends to the bile-ducts.
Also, the morbid complexus of catarrh of the bile-ducts includes the symptoms of duodenal and gastro-duodenal catarrh.
