Abstract

Introduction: The bowel duplications are very rare and they include 0.1% to 0.3% of all congenital malformation. Small intestine is the commonest site (44%) of enteric duplication. Case: A 26-yeras old female referred abdominal pain. The abdomen CT scan shows a cystic neoformation with fluid density, size of 50 mm. A resection of the ileal tract affected by the neoformation is performed and an isoperistaltic latero-lateral anastomosis is performed. Discussion: Intestinal duplication represents a congenital anomaly of the intestine that is found mainly in infants. Intestinal duplication is often associated with other gastrointestinal and extraintestinal anomalies. It can have a spherical or tubular shape; in the jejunum it occurs as a tubular duplication, while in the ileum as a spherical duplication. Conclusion: Treatment of intestinal duplications varies according to the presentation of the malformation. The usual approach remains, intestinal resection with primary anastomosis.
