Gastric ectopic tissue has been found in the tongue and mouth, in the esophagus, duodenum, small bowel, colon, and in Meckel's diverticula. Umbilical polyps, the bladder, appendix, gallbladder, and rectum, as well as pancreatic, intrathoracic, intra-abdominal, and spinal cysts, have all harbored gastric tissue. The first description of gastric heterotopia of the rectum was given in 1939. Other similar cases were found later. We report a young patient with rectal bleeding from an ulcerative lesion localized in ectopic gastric mucosa of the rectum.

Abstract

Gastric ectopic tissue has been found in the tongue and mouth, in the esophagus, duodenum, small bowel, colon, and in Meckel's diverticula. Umbilical polyps, the bladder, appendix, gallbladder, and rectum, as well as pancreatic, intrathoracic, intra-abdominal, and spinal cysts, have all harbored gastric tissue. The first description of gastric heterotopia of the rectum was given in 1939. Other similar cases were found later. We report a young patient with rectal bleeding from an ulcerative lesion localized in ectopic gastric mucosa of the rectum.
