Abstract: Duplication cysts of intestine are rare congenital malformations formed due to some developmental anomaly of gastrointestinal tract during embryonic period. They can occur in any portion of the gastrointestinal tract but are more commonly seen in small intestine. They have a variable clinical presentation depending on the size, site and type, or they may remain asymptomatic. In most of the cases they are detected during infancy or early childhood and uncommon in adults. Antenatal ultrasound can detect the condition in fetus and helps in follow- ups subsequently. Treatment of asymptomatic case is controversial, however early intervention prevents complications. Herein, we share our experience of managing a neonate with enteric duplication cyst, detected antenatally.
