Heterotopic pancreas (HP) is a relatively infrequent lesion most often found in the stomach. In the majority of cases, HP does not cause symptoms, but it can occasionally present as dyspepsia and upper gastrointestinal bleeding. This report describes the case of a 40-year-old man with gastric outlet obstruction resulting from HP in gastric antrum.
