Multiple Enteric Duplication Cysts in a Twin Fetus : Diagnosis and management

Shahila Sheik, Mariam Mathew, Mohamed Abdellatif, Asim Qureshi, Prakash Mandhan


Enteric duplication cysts are rare congenital anomalies of the gastrointestinal tract. These can be suspected if cystic lesions are noted in the fetal abdomen during an antenatal ultrasonogram. The differential diagnoses of fetal intra-abdominal cystic lesions include fetal omental cysts, fetal mesenteric cysts, meconium pseudocysts and fetal ovarian cysts. We report an antenatally diagnosed enteric duplication cyst in one of a set of twin fetuses which was managed successfully.
