Abstract
Duplication cysts are rare congenital malformations, that may be detected anywhere along the alimentary tract, and they may communicate with the intestinal tract. Cystic duplication of the cecum is especially rare. About 80% of these cases are detected in the first 2 years of life as a result of an acute intestinal obstruction, which manifests as vomiting, recurrent abdominal pain, recurrent gastrointestinal bleeding and constipation. We report a case of intestinal obstruction secondary to a duplication cyst of the cecum in a neonate. The patient underwent surgery and was diagnosed subsequently, and is presently healthy.
Key Words: Duplication cyst, Cecum, Intestinal Obstruction, Neonate
