Heterotopic pancreas is an uncommon condition that commonly occurs in the gastrointestinal tract such as the stomach and small bowel. It is defined as the presence of pancreatic tissue outside its usual location and lacking anatomical and vascular continuity with the pancreas. A heterotopic pancreas is usually found incidentally and is mostly silent; however, it rarely causes abdominal pain, weight loss, bleeding, or ileus. A 49-year-old male presented with intermittent abdominal pain for 4 weeks. We report a case with submucosal features of a jejunal heterotopic pancreas with the aid of capsule endoscopy and a histological confirmation through a single port laparoscopic segmental jejunectomy.
