Abstract

 

Background:  Pancreatic heterotopia is a relatively rare congenital anomaly that can be found in all ages. Even though it does not have connection with normal pancreatic tissue, similar pathological changes in regular and ectopic pancreatic tissue can be diagnosed. Case report: We report a case of a 9-year-old boy with a histopathological diagnosis of ectopic pancreatic tissue in antral region of the stomach. This diagnosis was supported by lobular architecture of pancreatic tissue that contained pancreatic acini, ducts and islets of Langerhans. Conclusion: Pancreatic heterotopia is a condition of uncertain origin and challenging diagnosis so histopathological examination is necessary in order to give a correct diagnosis.

 

 

 

Key words:

pancreas; heterotopia; stomach.

 

 

 

Sažetak

 

Uvod: Pankreatična heterotopija je relativno retka kongrenitalna anomalija koja se može javiti u svim starosnim grupama. Iako nema anatomsku ili vaskularnu povezanost sa normalnim tkivom pankreasa, patološke promene u normalnom i ektopičom tkivu pankreasa mogu biti skoro u potpunosti iste u zavisnosti od toga koja je komponenta prisutna. Prikaz slučaja: U ovom članku je prikazan slučaj devetogodišnjeg dečaka sa histopatološkom dijagnozom ektopičnog pankreatičnog tkiva u antrumu želuca. Dijagnoza je postavljena na osnovu histološke slike koja podrazumeva lobularnu arhitektoniku pankreatičnog tkiva koje sadrži pankreatične acinuse, kanaliće i Langerhansova ostrvca. Zaključak: Pankreatična heterotopija je stanje čije se poreklo objašnjava brojnim teorijama, i dijagnoza ovog stanja može predstavljati izazov, te je histopatološka potvrda neophodna za postavljanje pravilne dijagnoze i indikovanja daljeg lečenja, ukoliko je potrebno.

 

Ključne reči:
