Abstract: We present the case of a 30-year-old female suffering from a type five maturity onset diabetes of the young deficiency, resulting in type 1 diabetes and terminal renal insufficiency. She also had chronic and refractory pruritis due to primary sclerosing cholangitis—like fibrosis. She underwent combined en bloc liver and pancreas transplantation and kidney transplantation. The postoperative course was complicated by a gastric outlet obstruction due to compression of the native gastroduodenal junction by the donor aortic tube. This was treated by construction of a roux-en-Y gastrojejunostomy at posttransplant day 24. To our knowledge, compression of the gastroduodenal junction by a donor aortic tube after combined liver and pancreas (or multivisceral) transplantation has not been reported previously.
