 en Gastric Duplication Cyst in an Infant Presenting with Non-Bilious Vomiting
Kumar, G Krishna

Abstract

In an infant presenting with a mass in the abdomen and non-bilious vomiting, duplication cyst needs to be considered in the list of differential diagnoses. Gastric duplication cyst is an uncommon occurrence in children. Diagnosis is based on clinical findings and imaging features. Surgical excision is safe and offers a complete cure. The literature recommends excision even in asymptomatic cases due to isolated reports of malignancy arising in the duplication cyst in later life.
