Abstract

SOOKRAM, J; NAIDOO, N  and  CHEDDIE, S. Perforated caecal duplication cyst presenting as an appendicular abscess. S. Afr. j. surg. [online]. 2016, vol.54, n.3, pp.42-43. ISSN 2078-5151.

A duplication cyst of the caecum is a very rare congenital malformation, representing 0.4% of all gastrointestinal duplications. We present a case of cystic duplication of the caecum in a 12-year-old child who presented with a right iliac fossa mass and peritonitis. An ischaemic, perforated caecal duplication cyst was found on emergency laparotomy, mandating a right hemicolectomy.
