Distinguishing duodenal duplication cyst from choledochocele: A case report

Ongoly Okiemy, Helene Meunier, Allan M. Goldstein


Duodenal duplication cysts (DDC) are a rare type of enteric duplication. We describe the clinical presentation and laparoscopic management of a 7-year-old boy with a periampullary DDC.We also discuss the embryologic and imaging features that distinguish DDC from choledococele (CC). Careful consideration of the anatomic relationships between the ampulla, common bile duct, and duplication cyst are essential to avoid intraoperative bile duct injury.
