PMID:  11306324     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Ectopic localisation of the pancreas is not an uncommon entity, but it is mostly seen in the gastrointestinal tract. Herein we report a 45-year-old woman with a cyst containing pancreatic tissue in the mediastinum. The English literature reveals only three previous cases of this extremely rare localisation of the pancreas.
