A Chinese patient presented with a 3‐week history of vomiting. Pre‐operative barium swallow and upper endoscopy and biopsy revealed a squamous cell carcinoma of the lower oesophagus. Operative findings included a relatively early carcinoma of the oesophagus and an annular pancreas with dilated proximal duodenum. Oesophagectomy was performed and the whole stomach used for reconstruction. A pylorojejunos‐tomy provided drainage for the stomach as well as decompression of the proximal duodenum. This patient's congenital anomaly, with its attendant symptoms, led to the early diagnosis and treatment of an oesophageal malignancy with an expected improved prognosis.
