Usually, duodenal diverticula are asymptomatic. Only 10% are symptomatic and around 1% of patients require surgical intervention due to complications. We present three cases of duodenal diverticula that presented with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) induced upper gastrointestinal bleeding. Two were managed surgically and one could be managed endoscopically and is on proton pump inhibitors with regular follow-up.

Key words: Duodenal diverticula, NSAID, endoscopy
