Enteric duplication cysts are uncommon congenital abnormalities with epithelial lining. They are cystic or tubular structures intimately attached to a portion of the gastrointestinal tract; they are usually located on the mesenteric site of the digestive tract sharing common blood supply. Isolated cystic duplications are an extremely rare variant with their own blood supply: in literature only five cases have been reported. We present our four cases series of this uncommon anomaly.

Abstract

Enteric duplication cysts are uncommon congenital abnormalities with epithelial lining. They are cystic or tubular structures intimately attached to a portion of the gastrointestinal tract; they are usually located on the mesenteric site of the digestive tract sharing common blood supply. Isolated cystic duplications are an extremely rare variant with their own blood supply: in literature only five cases have been reported. We present our four cases series of this uncommon anomaly.
