Dr. Pratima Kujur | Dr. Shashikala Kosam | Dr. Girish Kumar Suman

Abstract: Duplication cyst is a rare congenital anomaly presenting in pediatric patients that is most commonly seen in the ileum. It was first described by Wendel. Though they are more often observed in the small intestine, DCs can also more rarely be rectal, duodenal, gastric, and thoraco-abdominal. They have an incidence of 1/100, 000. A 5 day old girl was admitted to our hospital for investigation of progressive abdominal distension and biliary vomiting. USG and CT-SCAN finding shows a large thin walled intra peritoneal well-defined cystic lesion occupying whole of the abdominal cavity. Microscopic examination of cyst shows features of enteric duplication cyst.
