Adenocarcinoma arising in a cystic duplication of the small bowel: case report and review of literature

World J Surg Oncol. 2012 Apr 10;10:55. doi: 10.1186/1477-7819-10-55.

Abstract

Enteric duplications are rare, but can occur anywhere along the digestive tract. Most of the patients become symptomatic in early childhood and only a few cases of adult patients have been reported in literature. Here we report a unique case of an adenocarcinoma arising in a coincidentally found cystic duplication of the small bowel.
