Résumé : Ectopic pancreas is pancreatic tissue found outside the usual anatomic location of the pancreas. It is often an incidental finding in clinical practice and can be found at different sites in the gastrointestinal tract. Although usually a silent anomaly, it may become clinically evident when complicated by pathologic changes such as inflammation, bleeding, obstruction, and malignant transformation. We describe a case of ectopic pancreas located in the stomach, treated with a laparoscopic approach that permitted isolation and complete resection of the lesion. The patient was discharged without complications and without recurrence of symptoms. Copyright © 2005 by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins.
