Abstract

Alimentary tract duplication is a rare congenital anomaly. We present herein, two cases of different types of alimentary tract duplications that have entirely different clinical presentations. The first case was a girl presented with chronic constipation was finally diagnosed with tubular duplications of the entire colon. The other was a toddler with acute intestinal obstruction diagnosed with cystic duplication at terminal ileum. These two cases remind us of the difficulty in preoperative diagnosis. High suspicion of the disease and multimodality approaches were beneficial for accurate preoperative diagnosis. Surgery was the mainstay of the treatment.
