    • "In our case, HtP was large and extending from serosa to the mucosa of bowel; hence we proceeded for the resection of HtP to avoid the risk of future complications. Pathologically HtP has been subdivided into four subtypes; type I heterotopia consists of typical pancreatic tissue; type II shows pancreatic ducts only, type III consists of acinar tissue only; and type IV has islet cells only [16] [17]. In our case, it was of type III as only pancreatic exocrine acinar tissue was noted in the resected tissue (Figure 1). "

    ABSTRACT: Congenital diaphragmatic hernia is a common developmental anomaly encountered by paediatric surgeons. It is known to be associated with extradiaphragmatic malformations, which include cardiac, renal, genital, and chromosomal abnormalities. Herein, we report a newborn born with concurrent congenital diaphragmatic hernia, Meckel's diverticulum, and heterotopic pancreatic tissue. This is the first case report of such a triad with description of possible mechanisms of the development.

    ABSTRACT: Background Heterotopic pancreas is a rare developmental anomaly defined as pancreatic tissue found on ectopic sites without contiguity with the main pancreas. An isolated heterotopic pancreas as a cause of bowel intussusception is extremely rare. Case Report A case of 47-year old male with multiple episodes of melena, constipation and abdominal pain for one year duration is presented. CT eneterography revealed a large circumferential lesion involving the terminal ileum that acted as a leading point to an ileo-ileal intussusception. The resection of the lesion and related bowel segment was carried out. The histopathological examination confirmed the excised lesion as a heterotopic pancreatic tissue. Conclusions Though a rare entity, heterotopic pancreas should be considered in the differential diagnosis of bowel intussusception.
