Özet

A case of gastric remnant carcinoma coexisting with a chronic afferent loop syndrome harboring multiple enteroliths in a grossly dilated and elongated afferent loop is presented herein. The patient had undergone a Polya type antecolic Billroth II reconstruction for a stenosing duodenal ulcer 40 years previously. A concise review of the relevant literature is also presented.
