Adenocarcinoma of duodenum contributes only 0.3-0.4% among all Gastrointestinal malignancies though 75% of all duodenal malignancies are adenocarcinoma.The reported incidence has been increasing due to the widespread use of endoscopy. Adenocarcinomas are the most common of small bowel malignancies, followed by carcinoid tumours, lymphomas, and leiomyosarcomas. We have reported adenocarcinoma in 60 years male. Surgery is the only means of cure. More evidence is needed to help define the role of segmental duodenectomy and chemotherapy in the management of this disease.
