Gastric duplication cyst with macroscopic serosal heterotopic pancreas.
Summary of "Gastric duplication cyst with macroscopic serosal heterotopic pancreas."
Gastric duplication cysts are often associated with microscopic evidence of ectopic pancreatic tissue on their submucosal surface and, less commonly, on the subserosal surface. CASE
We present an unusual case of a gastric duplication cyst with finger-like projections and a large heterotopic pancreas on the serosal surface of the cyst in a 30-year-old female.
We point out the unusual imaging findings which helped in the preoperative diagnosis.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Cyst-like space not lined by EPITHELIUM and contained within the PANCREAS. Pancreatic pseudocysts account for most of the cystic collections in the pancreas and are often associated with chronic PANCREATITIS.
Cysts formed from epithelial inclusions in the lines of fusion of the embryonic processes which form the jaws. They include nasopalatine or incisive canal cyst, incisive papilla cyst, globulomaxillary cyst, median palatal cyst, median alveolar cyst, median mandibular cyst, and nasoalveolar cyst.
Processes occurring in various organisms by which new genes arise, i.e. the duplication of a single gene. In contiguous gene duplication, the duplicated sequence coexists within the boundaries set by the start and stop signals for protein synthesis of the original, resulting in a larger transcription product and protein at the expense of the preexisting protein. In discrete gene duplication, the duplicated sequence is outside the start and stop signals, resulting in two independent genes (GENES, DUPLICATE) and gene products. Gene duplication may result in a MULTIGENE FAMILY; supergenes or PSEUDOGENES. (Rieger et al., Glossary of Genetics: Classical and Molecular, 5th ed)
A true cyst of the PANCREAS, distinguished from the much more common PANCREATIC PSEUDOCYST by possessing a lining of mucous EPITHELIUM. Pancreatic cysts are categorized as congenital, retention, neoplastic, parasitic, enterogenous, or dermoid. Congenital cysts occur more frequently as solitary cysts but may be multiple. Retention cysts are gross enlargements of PANCREATIC DUCTS secondary to ductal obstruction. (From Bockus Gastroenterology, 4th ed, p4145)
Most common follicular odontogenic cyst. Occurs in relation to a partially erupted or unerupted tooth with at least the crown of the tooth to which the cyst is attached protruding into the cystic cavity. May give rise to an ameloblastoma and, in rare instances, undergo malignant transformation.
BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical implication of serosal change in pathologic subserosa-limited gastric cancer based on a retrospective analysis....
BACKGROUND: Accurate intraoperative diagnosis of serosal invasion is a prerequisite for proper application of invasive procedures, such as intraperitoneal chemohyperthermia, for serosa positive gastri...
Gastrointestinal duplications can occur anywhere from the mouth to the anal cavity. The occurrence of a duplication cyst in the tongue of a neonate is very rare. These cysts occur due to endodermal ce...
Heterotopia of the pancreas can be defined as the presence of pancreatic tissue in an abnormal location without any continuity with the main body of the pancreas. Heterotopic pancreatic tissue located...
Heterotopic pancreas of the gallbladder is an extremely rare entity, especially when pancreatic tissue appears histologically with an exclusively exocrine structure.
Globus sensations are associated with gastroesophageal reflux disease as well as the presence of a gastric inlet patch. No controlled trial exists on whether ablation of the cervical heter...
Patients with pancreatitis can develop inflammatory fluid collection around the pancreas called pseudocysts. Pseudocysts may cause abdominal pain when they are more than 6cm in size. These...
Visceral hypersensitivity as evidence of central sensory sensitization is evident in many patients with functional disorders such as functional dyspepsia (FD) and irritable bowel syndrome...
The purpose of this trial is to compare two standard of care treatments for removing epidermal cysts. Surgical excision removes the entire cyst but requires a larger hole in the skin. A...
Silver nitrate treatment of Bartholin's cyst or abscess will be compared to marsupialization treatment. It is expected that silver nitrate treatment is effective, simple, inexpensive and...
