ABSTRACT

Thoracoabdominal foregut duplications account for less than 2% of all gastrointestinal duplications. Here, we report a case of thoracoabdominal duplication cyst in an eight-month old boy who presented with both respiratory and abdominal complaints. Excision of both thoracic and abdominal extensions of the thoracoabdominal duplications in the same session is an appropriate and safe option to prevent possible complications.
