Abstract

Multiple foci of heterotopic liver in the jejunum were sequentially discovered in an infant boy at the ages of 1 day, 2 months and 4 months. This is the second reported case of jejunal heterotopic liver, a rare entity in any site. Progressive histological changes indicative of biliary duct obstruction were observed in the hepatic heterotopias, which demonstrated no connections to the main body of the liver or biliary tree.
