Esophageal duplication, a term used synonymously with enteric cyst, foregut cyst, gastroenteric cyst, enteric duplication, and etc, is a rare developmental anomaly which occures during differentia- tion of the larynx, trachea, and bronchi from the primitive foregut. They may cause dysphagia, regurgitation, pneumonia, hemoptysis, and occasionally produce alarming airway obstruction. We experienced a case with chief complaints of pale appearance and swallowing difficulty in 5 years old male child, who was diagnosed as iron deficiency anemia as a result of esophageal duplication in mediastinum. After the esophageal duplication was removed by resection, above symptoms and signs were improved. We presented this case with a review of referential literatures.
