Figure 1
Figure 1 Upper abdominal computed tomography images. A: A lobulated solid mass (orange arrow) in the cauda pancreas invading the splenic pedicle; B: The gastric antrum is full of chyme, and the accurate condition of the gastric wall is not clear (orange arrowhead).
Figure 2
Figure 2 Enhanced upper abdominal computed tomography images. A: A cystic solid mass measuring 3.5 cm × 3 cm × 2 cm in the cauda pancreas (orange arrow) surrounding the splenic vessels; B: Thickening of the antral wall and slight obstruction of the pylorus (orange arrowhead).
Figure 3
Figure 3 Gastric endoscopy revealed a submucosal lesion that arose from the surface of the pylorus.
Figure 4
Figure 4 Enhanced upper abdominal magnetic resonance imaging. A: An intensified mass (orange arrow); B: Thickening of the pyloric wall (orange arrowhead).

Figure 5 Histology (HE, 40 × magnification). A: Disorganized pancreatic acini joining together and forming rough structures without islets and separated by bundles of smooth muscle (yellow arrow); the concomitant Brunner’s glands (blue arrow); and the undifferentiated mucus-secreting ducts, somewhat similar to gastric glands (white arrow); B: Typical gastric adenomyoma in another section of the gastric mass (yellow arrow) showing a mucus-secreting duct lined with columnar or cubic epithelial cells and surrounded by proliferating smooth muscle cells without heterotopic pancreas nearby.
