ABSTRACT
Esophageal duplication cysts are classified as a subgroup of foregut duplication cysts. They are very rare and are predominantly detected in children. Antenatal detection is very rare. We report a case of an esophageal duplication cyst that was accurately identified antenatally by USG and MRI.

Figure 0004: Histopathologic section of the cyst wall shows gastric-type mucosa (arrows) with a thick muscular layer (arrowheads)

Mentions: On the fifth day of life, the neonate underwent a right anterolateral thoracotomy. The cyst was dissected from the adjacent tissues and totally excised. The child recovered uneventfully. Histopathological examination showed gastric-type mucosa with well-developed submucosa, muscularis propria, and serosa [Figure 4]. There was no cell atypia to suggest malignancy. These findings confirmed the radiological diagnosis.
