Abstract

An ectopic pancreas is the presence of pancreatic tissue outside of its usual location. This condition rarely causes clinical symptoms, and the most commonly reported sites of these lesions are the stomach, the duodenum and jejunum. The presence of this ectopic tissue is not a rare condition, but its unusual locations, clinical symptoms, and complications are of clinical interest. We report a case of a gastric ectopic pancreas with recurrent upper gastrointestinal bleeding in a 20-year-old man.
