Volume 14, Issue 2 , Spring 2019, , Pages 180-183

http://dx.doi.org/10.30699/ijp.14.2.180

Abstract
  Heterotopic pancreas (HP) is generally asymptomatic and found incidentally. It can act very rarely as a leading point for intussusception. Thus, it should be considered as a differential diagnosis of the mass lesions leading to the intestinal intussusception. Herein, we report an unusual case of HP as ...  Read More
