Gastric Duplication Cyst Associated with Esophageal Atresia and Anorectal Malformations: A Rare Association

Rajat Piplani, Deepak Bagga, Samir K Acharya

Abstract


Esophageal atresia (EA) and tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF) and anorectal malformations (ARM) in a newborn usually present with frothing of saliva and massive abdominal distension rendering it difficult to diagnose associated intrabdominal pathologies. We report a large gastric duplication (GD) cyst in a 2-day-old neonate with EA and TEF. GD cyst was detected in the early post-operative period as the abdominal distension persisted after repair of EA and TEF. The baby underwent excision of GD cyst with good outcome thereafter.
