Abstract

Background: Though the duplication cysts presenting with intestinal obstruction are not uncommon in neonates, tubular duplications may pose a significant diagnostic and management challenge.

Case Presentation: We present the successful management of a neonate presenting with intestinal obstruction. The diagnosis of ileocolonic tubular duplication cyst was made intra-operatively. The cyst was managed with a novel technique.

Conclusion: Tubular duplications of the alimentary tract rarely encounter in neonates. The surgeons should improvise the surgical technique to manage such anomalies.
