Malignant degeneration of a chronic peptic duodenal ulcer is rarely observed, as compared with malignant changes in a peptic ulcer of the stomach.

On critical evaluation, only 3 cases proved to be adequately documented histologically. These were Rothaug's case of a 74-year-old woman, Ewald's (3) of a woman aged 67, and Kettle's (4) of a man of 68. Pathologists use the same criteria in evaluating such cases as those of malignant degeneration of
