Abstract


Dorsal agenesis of the pancreas is a very rare congenital anomaly with less than 100 cases reported in the world literature till 2020. Dorsal agenesis associated with pancreatic tumors is extremely rare; only 17 cases have been reported to date. Here we reported a rare case of dorsal agenesis of the pancreas associated with mixed carcinoma of the pancreas.
