Enteric Duplication Cyst: A Case Report

Dr. Sweta Patel | Dr. Iliyas A. Juneja

Abstract: Enteric duplication cyst are rare congenital malformations. These are mostly seen in early childhood but rarely detected in adults. Intestinal duplication cysts most commonly occur in the small intestine. There are serious complications such as obstruction, torsion, intussusception, and a tendency for malignant transformation. To prevent these complications, resection should be performed as early as possible, even for small intestine duplication cysts discovered accidentally. In this paper, we report a unique case of a terminal ileum duplication cyst in a 20 - year - old female who presented with a chief complaint of a right sided abdominal pain. Based upon computed tomography, the diagnosis was confirmed. The cyst was resected laparoscopically. Advancement in laparoscopic techniques has made it possible to treat enteric duplication cyst in an earlier phase and with minimal incision.
