Material and method: Twenty normal duodenums were examined.
Our material consisted of 20 whole duodenums (from the pylorus to the duodenal-jejunal transition).
BGs were found in all of the 240 microscope fields examined from the first (superior) anatomical portion of the 20 duodenums studied (100%).
