Abstract

BACKGROUND: Ectopic pancreatic tissue is a rare congenital anomaly and usually presents along the gastrointestinal tract. If not recognized, it can be confused histologically with an adeno-carcinoma. CASE: We report a case arising in periaortic adipose tissue, found incidentally in a woman undergoing periaor-tic lymphadenectomy for recurrent ovarian carcinoma. CONCLUSION: We found no other reports of this lesion in periaortic tissue. Clinicians and pathologists need to be aware of this entity, which may rarely be encountered.
