17 March 2021
Ectopic prostatic tissue (EPT) is fairly uncommon; however, when reported, it is most often found in the male genitourinary tract. Since extragenitourinary EPT is very rare, it is extremely difficult to properly diagnose preoperatively.(1-3) This article describes a unique case of EPT found in the right paracolic gutter.
