Incidental Ectopic pancreas in gallbladder: a case report
Páncreas Ectópico incidental en vesícula biliar: reporte de caso
Keywords:Gallbladder, pancreas, ectopic tissue, incidental findings
Ectopic pancreas is an unusual finding, with an incidence below 0.5% of all reports worldwide. We report a 26 years old woman who went to emergency room with abdominal pain and underwent laparoscopic cholecystectomy. The pathology report described pancreatic ectopic tissue in the wall of the gallbladder. This finding must be thoroughly evaluated because this tissue can suffer diseases like pancreatitis, cystic tumours and malign degeneration, and should be considerated in the context of gallbladder polips with digestive sintomatology.
