ABSTRACT
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.
KEY WORDS

ABSTRACT
Worldwide there is an increasing care of academic programs and research in Health Professions Education (HPE). Despite this there is still a lack of the Arabic academic programs and literature related to this field. The Eastern Mediterranean Regional Office of the World Health Organization (EMRO-WHO) is interested in enriching the Arabic literature of HPE in order to promote education and training of health manpower.In 2012, Suez Canal University, with the support of EMRO-WHO, has inaugurated a Diploma of Health Professions Education conducted through distance e-learning in Arabic language. The target group of the Diploma are health professions educators and trainers in the Arab region.To provide convenient, contextual and case sensitive literature for study in the Arabic Diploma of HPE, a set of practical guidelines were developed by a group of experts and consultants. Among these, practical guidelines for curriculum development were developed and published in an Arabic book.
