Heterotopic pancreas is mostly found incidentally, and adenocarcinoma arising from heterotopic pancreas appears to be extremely rare. A case of a 46-year-old woman with adenocarcinoma arising from intrahepatic heterotopic pancreas is reported herein. Computed tomography demonstrated a mass located in the bile duct of the left hepatic lobe. Pathological examination revealed a moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma arising from intrahepatic heterotopic pancreas with nerve infiltration. This may be the first reported case of adenocarcinoma arising from intrahepatic heterotopic pancreas.
