We present computed tomographic (CT) and sonographic findings of heterotopic gastric mucosa incidentally found in a 63-year-old male. CT showed a slightly high density area in the gallbladder, which was intermediately enhanced early after bolus injection of contrast medium. Ultrasonography showed an echogenic sessile polyp. Histologically, the tumor consisted of gastric fundic glands containing parietal cells and chief cells.
