Heterotopic Pancreas within the Proximal Hepatic Duct, Containing Intraductal Papillary Mucinous Neoplasm.

Lawrence AJ, Thiessen A, Morse A, Shapiro AM - Case Rep Surg (2015)

Bottom Line: We report a unique first case of benign heterotopic pancreas arising within the proximal hepatic bile duct, containing a focus of intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm (IPMN).The condition was diagnosed on pathological explant after left hepatic lobectomy with total extrahepatic bile duct excision.
