Key Words Esophageal duplication cyst; Intra-abdominal; Symptomatic; Laparoscopy
Core Tip Intra-abdominal esophageal duplication cysts are rare entities in adults, especially when they are symptomatic. Since these anomalies can lead to complications surgical excision is advised for all of them. We present a case of a 20-year-old male with colic-like abdominal pain, mimicking symptoms of cholecystolithiasis, but caused by an intra-abdominal duplication cyst of the esophagus. The cyst was excised laparoscopically. The procedure was uneventful and the patient was free of symptoms. This case shows that one must consider the diagnosis of a symptomatic intra-abdominal esophageal duplication cyst when more common diagnoses to account for the patient’s symptoms are excluded.
