Abstract


  Heterotopic pancreatic tissue, known as pancreatic rest, is a pancreatic tissue that lacks anatomic and vascular continuity with the main body of the pancreas. Common locations for this tissue include the stomach, duodenum, jejunum, Meckel diverticulum, and ileum. In this report, we present a case of a patient whose pancreatic rest was diagnosed primarily during the investigation of dysphagia with solid foods and it was located in the mid esophagus as an unusual location.
