Abstract

A case of a patient with ectopic pancreas in the proximal jejunum associated with duodenal bile duct hamartoma and Brunner's gland hyperplasia is described. The simultaneous finding of these discrete and uncommon lesions has not been previously reported and allows for speculation about a common embryologic origin.
