Abstract

Gastric duplication cysts comprise 2-7% of gastrointestinal duplications, rare congenital malformations that can be present at almost any part of the alimentary tract. They mostly present with gastrointestinal obstruction symptoms, ulceration, and painless hemorrhage. Symptoms include nausea, vomiting, and fullness sensation. Gastric duplications are mostly cystic in shape. Herein, we present a 58-year-old man with a gastric duplication cyst, 70×30×35 mm in size, with the initial presentation of abdominal pain, icterus, and elevated liver enzymes. The patient provided informed consent for this report.
