Pancreatic heterotopia is a rare pathologic entity, previously reported in the stomach, duodenum & jejunum .The placement of ectopic pancreatic tissue in an organ outside the pancreas known as heterotopic pancreas. It is an embryological abnormality. Pancreatic heterotopia is discovered incidentally in 2% of autopsies .The etiology of ectopic pancreatic tissue is not yet clear. It is mostly asymptomatic & rarely gives rise to complications. Histologically identified outside the normal tissue without any anatomical, vascular or neural connection with the gland. Ectopic pancreatic tissue is most commonly seen in the stomach & duodenum, GB is a very rare location. We report here, a case of pancreatic heterotopia of the GB in an 45year old female, suffering with right upper quadrant abdominal pain with a clinical diagnosis of chronic cholecystitis.
