SILVA, Gisela et al. Heterotopic pancreas in a child with trisomy 8 mosaicism syndrome: an accidental association?. Nascer e Crescer [online]. 2012, vol.21, n.2, pp.107-109. ISSN 0872-0754.

Introduction: Heterotopic pancreas is a rare congenital malformation, usually asymptomatic. It is defined as pancreatic tissue found outside the usual anatomic location of the pancreas. The preoperative diagnosis is difficult because most of the cases have an appearance similar to submucosal tumours. Case report: We report the case of a three-year-old male with 8 trisomy mosaicism, Meckel´s diverticulum and omphalocele with an ectopic pancreatic lesion. It was located in the stomach less curvature, and presenting as gastrointestinal bleeding. Discussion/Conclusion: Trisomy 8 mosaicism syndrome is a relatively common chromosomal abnormality but so far there is no known relationship between HP or other gastrointestinal malformations and this chromosomopathy. Nevertheless, there is a relationship between HP and various gastrointestinal malformations, including esophageal atresia, omphalocele and Meckel´s diverticulum.

Palavras-chave : Gastrointestinal bleeding; heterotopic Pancreas; Trisomy 8 mosaicism.
