Annular pancreas (AP) is a rare congenital abnormality in which pancreatic tissue completely surround the duodenum. Presentation of AP in adulthood is very rare and obstructive jaundice is one of the uncommon manifestations of AP in adults. Herein; we reported a 47 years old woman who presented with icterus, midcommon bile duct stricture and annular pancreas. She was diagnosed as pancreas cancer three months after surgery.
