Aorto-mesenteric duodenal compression syndrome is a rare disease in which superior mesenteric artery causes a substenosis of the duodenum. Pathogenesis of this syndrome is due to congenital or acquired factors. Sympto-mathology is usually non specific and intermittent. Diagnosis is given by selective superior mesenteric artery angiography. Therapy is only surgery.
