Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Heterotopic pancreas is an aberration in the developmental profile of the pancreas. This entity is rarely symptomatic and its malignant transformation is even rarer. However, when present, it poses a diagnostic dilemma to clinicians, as little help comes from gastroenteroscopy and imaging. Surgical exploration remains the only option at times, and it is the histopathological examination that finally clears the mist. This case report reveals the elusive nature of malignancy in heterotopic pancreas in the duodenum.
