    Heterotopic glial tissue is very rare in the orbit. Our case was an adult, which is unique since most cases reported in literature involve children. We describe a case of a 60-year-old man who presented with an orbital mass, which histopathologically revealed heterotopic glial tissue.

    Pathological intussusception is rare in infancy with Meckel's diverticulum being the most common lesion. Isolated heterotopic pancreatic tissue in the serosa of the ileum causing intussusception is extremely rare. We report a case of ileal heterotopic pancreatic tissue associated with ectopic...
