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.
