Abstract
PURPOSE: To evaluate computed tomography (CT) findings of heterotopic pancreas of the mesentery (HPM). METHODS: Two radiologists reviewed CT scans of seven patients with HPM to determine the location, relationship with the adjacent bowel, presence of a duct-like structure, and the enhancement pattern of HPM in consensus. RESULTS: All HPMs were located in the jejunal mesentery and had morphologic features closely resembling those of the main pancreas and had unique relationship with the jejunum. Duct-like structures were observed in five lesions. The enhancement pattern varied. CONCLUSION: It is important to be aware of characteristic CT features of HPM to eliminate unnecessary surgeries.
