If these symptoms follow an extensive burn of the skin, they are easily referred to a duodenal ulcer.
The next most likely point is the duodenal end of the common duct.
There is practically an entire absence of duodenal or duodeno-jejunal folds and foss.

The careworn face with lines about the mouth and forehead is one of the plainest signs of duodenal defect.
It is not unlikely that in the cases of duodenal cancer the new growth extended from the pylorus.
duodenal like gastric ulcers are attended with the liability to hemorrhage and perforation in equal if not greater degree.
Avoid mistaking gastric or duodenal ulcer, with or without perforation, for the effects of a corrosive poison.
In some subjects the “inferior” fold is the only one found, and the only duodenal fossa then encountered looks cephalad.
