The close relationship of the developing hepatic parenchyma cell cords to the pars cystica and early fetal duodenum may explain why ectopic hepatic tissue could be found in the wall of the gallbladder, the gastrohepatic ligament, the umbilical cord, the adrenal glands, the diaphragm, the pancreas, the pylorus, and the splenic capsule if a portion of the pars hepatica is displaced.
