This report describes an 18-month-old boy with a completely isolated duplication cyst (CIDC) of the ileum associated with another classic enteric duplication cyst in the adjacent bowel and presenting as an acute abdomen due to torsion of the pedicle of the CIDC. Cysts excision was curative.
[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Alimentary tract duplications are uncommon congenital anomalies. A case of male neonate referred with antenatally diagnosed cystic lesions in the thorax and abdomen is presented, which represents a rare example of coexistence of ileal and esophageal duplication cysts with a concurrent Completely Isolated Duplication Cyst (CIDC). Awareness of varied presentations may help in appropriate management during surgery. KEYWORDS: Duplication cyst, completely isolated duplication cyst, enterogenous cyst
[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Background:
Classical duplications may present along any part of gastrointestinal tract (GIT) from mouth to anus. Atypical or unusual rare varieties of GIT duplications may also occur, but with different anatomical features.
Materials and methods:
We reviewed our 5-year record (February 2008-January 2013) to describe clinical profile of unusual GIT duplications in neonates and small infants.
Three patients with atypical variety of GIT duplications were managed in our department during this tenure. Two were females and one male. Age was ranged between 11 days and 2 months. All patients presented with massive abdominal distension causing respiratory embarrassment in two of them. In all patients, the pre-operative differential diagnoses also included GIT duplication cysts. Computerized tomography (CT) scan showed single huge cyst in one and multiple cysts in two patients. In one patient the CT scan also depicted a thoracic cyst in relation to posterior mediastinum. At operation, one patient had colonic tubular duplication cyst along with another isolated duplication cyst, the second case had a tubular duplication cyst of ileum with its segmental dilatation, and in the third case two isolated duplications were found. Duplication cysts were excised along with mucosal stripping in one patient, cyst excision and intestinal resection and anastomosis in one patient, and only cysts excision in one. All patients did well post-operatively.
We presented unusual GIT duplications. These duplications are managed on similar lines as classical duplications with good prognosis when dealt early.

[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Alimentary tract duplications are uncommon congenital abnormalities that usually have an anatomical connection with some part of the gastrointestinal tract and have a common blood supply with the adjacent segment of intestine. A completely isolated duplication cyst (CIDC) is a very rare type of gastrointestinal duplication that does not communicate with the normal bowel segment and possesses its own exclusive blood supply. Only 5 CIDC cases in adults have been reported in the English medical literature. Additionally, only 1 case of mucinous cystadenoma from an infected CIDC of the ileum has been reported. This report describes a 52-year-old male patient with a peritoneal CIDC, which upon curative excision was found to have given rise to an adenocarcinoma. The latter was lined internally with malignant glandular cells and contained a smooth muscular outer layer as determined by microscopic examination of the tissue. We believe that this is the first reported case of an adenocarcinoma originating from a CIDC in an adult.
