Abstract

Ectopic localisation of the pancreas is not an uncommon entity, but it is mostly seen in the gastrointestinal tract. Herein we report a 45-year-old woman with a cyst containing pancreatic tissue in the mediastinum. The English literature reveals only three previous cases of this extremely rare localisation of the pancreas. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
