Gastric ectopic pancreas presenting as a submucosal tumour accounts for approximately 11% of all endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) examinations. Definitive diagnosis through endoscopy is difficult, even with EUS-guided fine-needle aspiration biopsy for histological examination. For symptomatic patients or those with uncertain diagnosis, complete surgical resection is the primary strategy for treatment and diagnosis. Herein, we report a case of gastric ectopic pancreas treated using robotic surgery.
