Abstract

A case of anomalous location of the pancreas is presented. In this case, head and a part of the body of the pancreas were found intraperitoneal. The pancreas was covered by the peritoneum within the omental bursa except its tail. Additionally, the anterior layer of the hepatogastric ligament turned over the hepatoduodenal ligament and continued behind the head of the pancreas together with the peritoneum which formed the posterior wall of the epiploic foramen (Winslow). The peritoneum also covered a part of the posterior surface of the body and directed to the right, forming a recessus just behind the pancreas.
