A case of heterotopic gastric mucosa in discrete nodules of the duodenum is presented. Its radiographic and endoscopic appearance is described. The light and electron microscopic features are analyzed. Ultrastructural examination of its organization, cellular and subcellular components revealed similarities to normal fundic gastric mucosa. The histological and clinical differences between heterotopic gastric mucosa and duodenal metaplastic change are discussed.
