Abstract

Ectopic pancreatic tissue has the same characteristics than normal pancreatic tissue. Therefore it may be affected by the same diseases. We report a rare cause of epigastric pain due to gastric heterotopic pancreatitis. The rare diagnosis was suspected by ultrasound and CT and definitively confirmed by echo-endoscopic guided biopsies.
