Peptic ulcer disease (PUD) has a significant health burden. Penetration is a rare complication of PUD, where an ulcer erodes into another organ. To the best of our knowledge, we present the fourth case in the literature where a gastric ulcer has penetrated the pancreas. A 67-year-old man with a history of PUD presented to the emergency department for epigastric pain. Endoscopy revealed a large gastric ulcer at the incisura with magnetic resonance imaging demonstrating gastropancreatic fistula. Our case emphasizes on the importance of timely identification and treatment strategies for gastropancreatic fistula, the rarest complications of PUD.
