ΕΤΥΜΟΛΟΓΙΑ

Greek ek meaning 'out of' and topos meaning place.

The presence of tissue outside of its normal anatomical location.

The term ectopic overlaps with, but is subtly different from, the term heterotopic. The term ectopic is sometimes used when the term heterotopic would be more accurate and informative.
