This report describes a laparoscopic approach for the treatment of a benign gastric mass. A 15-year-old female presented with recurrent epigastric pain. Preoperative endoscopic and x-ray evaluation demonstrated a submuscosal tumor of the greater curvature. The patient underwent a laparoscopic resection of a heterotopic pancreatic tumor in the stomach. A description of our technique and a review of the pathophysiologic features of this disease is included.
