Bilious vomiting is a relevant sign in children that requires immediate evaluation and diagnosis. One of the causes is an obstruction of the intestinal tract due to duplication if located distal to the major duodenal papilla of Vater. Most of the duplications involve the jejunum, stomach, and colon. Duodenal duplications are very rare and can have an endoscopic or surgical treatment after diagnosis. We are reporting here a case of duodenal duplication in a 3-month-old male child who presented to us with bilious vomiting. Most of them are associated with other anomalies. Completely isolated duodenal duplication is very rare. Therefore, we tried to review the topic while presenting this rare case report of isolated duodenal duplication cyst.
