Abstract

Ectopic pancreas is an uncommon and benign finding. However, these lesions can cause symptoms including abdominal pain and often require removal. We present the case of a 27-year-old patient with long-standing vague abdominal symptoms eventually found to have ectopic pancreas tissue in the proximal jejunum.
