Anomalous pancreaticobiliary junction

Dr Jeremy Jones and Radswiki et al.

An anomalous pancreaticobiliary junction describes the abnormal junction of the pancreatic duct and common bile duct that occurs outside the duodenal wall to form a long common channel (> 15 mm).

The anomalous junction is often associated with a choledochal cyst or a biliary tract carcinoma and predisposes to acute pancreatitis.

Treatment is surgical correction.
