Sir,

We read with great interest the article by Vijayaraghavan et al., titled “Sonographic features of agenesis of dorsal pancreas,” which was published in the August 2013 issue of the journal.[1] The authors have narrated the clinical and radiological presentation of a rare entity in a suitable manner. In the discussion section, authors have mentioned that “the dorsal bud drains through duct of Wirsung and the ventral bud drains through duct of Santorini (accessory pancreatic duct). The dorsal bud duct joins the duct of Santorini and forms the major pancreatic duct which in turn joins the common bile duct and drains into major duodenal papilla (ampulla of Vater).” While the fact is that the dorsal bud drains through the accessory duct of Santorini into the minor papilla and the ventral bud is drained via the duct of Wirsung, and finally with pancreatic fusion, the distal part of the dorsal bud duct joins the duct of Wirsung to form the major pancreatic duct.[2],[3]
