Gastric outlet obstruction is a common entity described with numerous benign and malignant causes. Historically, benign causes include Peptic Ulcer disease (PUD); however recent cases have reported other causes including Eosinophilic Gastroenteritis (EGE), Brunner’s Gland Hyperplasia (BGH) and Pancreatic Heterotopia (PH). We present an unusual case of a 31 year old male patient with severe gastric outlet obstruction requiring surgical intervention caused by all three pathologies in unison – EGE, BGH and PH. The patient underwent surgical resection with distal gastrectomy and Billroth II reconstruction. Histology confirmed the three pathologies and post-operative recovery of the patient was uneventful.
