Abstract

Alimentary tract duplications are rare congenital anomalies with the majority identified in the pediatric age group. However, duplications may be seen in the adult population and require operative excision. A 53-year-old man was seen with vague, nonspecific symptoms and was found to have a complete esophageal and gastric duplication with communication to the normal alimentary tract. Appropriate-for-structure epithelium was noted throughout the length of the duplication.
