Duplication cysts are congenital cystic malformation of the alimentary tract consisting of a duplication of the segment to which it is adjacent. It can occur anywhere from mouth to anus.Oesophageal duplication cysts comprise 4% of the same. Of these, total intra-abdominal oesophageal duplication cysts are extremely rare. On review of literature, only 3 case reports of total intra-abdominal oesophageal duplication managed laparoscopically are found. All these cases were adults. We report the first paediatric case of intra-abdominal oesophageal duplication cyst excised laparoscopically.
