CHINNERY, G E et al. Gastric heterotopia causing jejunal ulceration and obstruction. S. Afr. j. surg. [online]. 2013, vol.51, n.4, pp.146-147. ISSN 2078-5151.

A young woman with persistent postprandial vomiting was found to have a high-grade proximal jejunal stricture. The stricture was surgically excised, and histopathological examination showed gastric heterotopia with localised ulceration and fibrosis. Symptomatic gastric heterotopia in the small bowel is rare, and to our knowledge this is the first report of jejunal gastric heterotopia resulting in ulceration with subsequent stricturing and obstruction.
