Gastric duplication cyst mimicking pancreatic pseudocyst/hydatid cyst: A rare presentation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Congenital gastrointestinal duplications are rare, and gastric duplication cysts are even rarer. Most cases are seldom diagnosed preoperatively. We present a case of gastric duplication cyst, which in preoperative imaging studies mimicked a hydatid/pseudocyst of the pancreas. The diagnosis was made only intraoperatively and was confirmed by histopathological examination of the completely excised cyst.
