Heterotopic mesenteric ossification (HMO) is a rare entity with few cases reported in the world literature. We report two cases. Both patients underwent an open gastric bypass with Roux-en-Y reconstruction procedure for morbid obesity and subsequently presented with gastrointestinal fistulae associated with HMO.
