Abstract

Prompt preoperative diagnosis of duodenal duplication cyst is uncommon owing to its extreme rarity. The ideal treatment of intestinal duplication cyst is complete surgical excision, though in few cases, due to the proximity to the bilio-pancreatic duct, the complete excision is not possible. We herein present an infant presenting with bilious vomiting starting few days after birth. Ultrasonography and CT scan provided the diagnosis of the duplication cyst in relation to duodenum. A successful surgical management by a subtotal excision was done. Although duodenal duplication is seldom seen, it should be considered in differential diagnoses of upper gastrointestinal tract (GIT) occlusion.
