Causes and Risk Factors 

The most common cause behind duodenitis is infection by a bacterium called  Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) bacteria. The infection is spread through contaminated food and water. Its transmission happens through direct contact with vomiting, saliva or other body fluids of a person infected with this bacteria. This bacteria disrupts the mucus barrier which protects the duodenal lining from stomach contents that are acidic. This damage to the mucus barrier put a person at increased risk of inflammation in duodenum.

The next common reason behind duodenitis is long term use of NSAIDs i.e. non – steroidal anti inflammatory drugs like aspirin and ibuprofen. 

Apart from these, some other causes and risk factors are:

Drinking excessive alcohol. 

Crohn’s disease – An inflammatory bowel disease – IBD, that can cause inflammation in any part of the gastrointestinal tract from mouth to anus including duodenum. It is a disease of autoimmune origin.


Trauma or injury to the duodenum.

Certain viral infections.

Celiac disease – An autoimmune disease in which eating gluten which is a protein found in the wheat, barley and rye leads to damage in the small intestine from an immune response.

Radiation therapy and chemotherapy done for cancer treatment also predispose a person.

Recent surgery in the small intestine. 

Intense stress caused by major surgery.

Swallowing toxic /poisonous substances. 


Duodenitis does not cause symptoms in each and every case. When they appear they include stomach pain, burning or cramping in the stomach and in some cases  the stomach pain going through to the back. Other symptoms that tend to appear in such cases include nausea, vomiting, a bloated feeling in stomach, indigestion, sensation of fullness in the stomach that appears soon after beginning to eat and loss of appetite. If it is left untreated for a long duration then there is a risk that it  can lead to an ulcer in the duodenum.

Sometimes the stool may look black or vomiting may look like wet coffee ground particles that happen if there is some internal bleeding. While in some cases the stomach pain gets very intense. These are serious symptoms that can arise in some cases and they can be life threatening thus immediate help from conventional mode of treatment should be taken in such cases.
