Abstract: Intestinal duplication is a rare congenital anomaly. Duplications found in proximity of small intestine are
the most common enteric duplications encountered and majority of these occurs in the ileum. They may be either
cystic or tubular and most of them are located in the mesentery of intestine. We are here presenting a case of a
neonate who got delivered by lower segment caesarean section (LSCS) with a huge abdominal mass. At surgery
there was huge small gut duplication at ileum.
