Heterotopic pancreas (HP) is typically an asymptomatic malformation that can present anywhere along the gastrointestinal tract. It is frequently detected incidentally on surgery for other diseases or autopsy. We encountered an incidentally detected subserosal nodule in proximal jejunum during exploratory laparotomy for other cause which was resected and on histopathology confirmed to be HP. Histologically, most of the tumors are located in the submucosa, rarely in the muscularis propria, and only seldom in the subserosal. This case is of great interest because of the subserosal location of the tumor.
