Congenital duodenal obstruction is a common cause of neonatal intestinal obstructions. The occurrence of duodenal obstructions in family is extremely rare. We operated on two consecutive sisters presented with symptoms of duodenal obstruction. In both of our patients, annular pancreas was identified as a cause of duodenal obstruction. Only less than twenty cases have been published in English literatures. To the author's knowledge, we are the first to report the cases of familial annular pancreas and duodenal stenosis in Malaysia.
