GALINDO GOMEZ, Jorge et al. Ectopic pancreas. Rev. bol. ped. [online]. 2003, vol.42, n.3, pp. 173-174. ISSN 1024-0675.

Ectopic pancreas is a rare congenital anomaly; its early and precise diagnosis is complicated, which makes the description of the present case interesting. This is an 11- year-old boy who presented signs of acute renal insufficiency and was eventually diagnosed as having an acute abdomen. During the surgical procedure we found a tumoral mass in the antimesenteric border which pathology later showed was pancreatic tissue.

Keywords : Rev Soc Bol Ped 2003; 42 (3): 173-4; ectopic pancreas; acute abdomen.
