The article presents the case of a 40-years-old woman suffering from acute intestine disease. The patient is admitted to the emergency department due acute epigastric and tarry stools. Diagnosis findings identify a wind sock sign in the duodenum by a narrow radiolucent line. Some of the common complications of the disease includes bleeding, obstruction cholangitis and pancreatitis. Endoscopic surgery is suggested as an effective medical approach in treating symptomatic patients.
