Abstract

Intestinal duplications are rare developmental anomalies that can occur anywhere along the gastrointestinal tract. Gastric duplication cysts are uncommon congenital anomalies and are rarely diagnosed in adults. However, diagnosis of the condition in an adult can be difficult, as it is usually asymptomatic, or the symptoms are nonspecific. Here we report a rare case of symptomatic Gastric duplication cysts in an adult who was treated successfully with surgical resection.
