Duodenocaval fistula (DCF) is an uncommon but lethal clinical entity. The high mortality has been attributed to the difficulty of diagnosis before attempts at definitive therapy.
A case report and review of literature to be published on May 14, 2010 in the World Journal of Gastroenterology addresses the diagnostic significance of computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for DCF.
