Cases of aberrant pancreas (AP) are rarely found in the pediatric age group. AP is occasionally found in the stomach, where it can mimic other digestive disorders. We report a 50-day-old male, admitted to the hospital for blood-stained vomiting and anemia. Endoscopy of the upper gastrointestinal tract showed a submucosal, bulging prepyloric mass with a central opening that led us to suspect an AP. This diagnosis was confirmed at surgery (grade 1, Derbyshire classification). At 1-year follow-up the child was normal. The AP is a rare lesion in children; in symptomatic cases it can be diagnosed endoscopically by the characteristic central opening. © 1992 Springer-Verlag.
