Abstract:

Duplications of gastrointestinal tract are rare congenital malformations, with ileum being the most common site. They are composed of smooth muscle wall with gastrointestinal mucosal lining. They usually become symptomatic early in life and require excision to avoid complications. They can pose a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge. They should be differentiated from a mesenteric cyst, omental cyst, cystic lymphangioma and other intra-abdominal cystic lesions. Herein we present a case of disconnected duplication cyst of the ileum in a 6-year-old boy.
