Duodenal duplication cysts are rare congenital anomalies that generally present with abdominal pain and vomiting or may have nonspecific symptoms. Surgical excision is the recommended treatment owing to possible complications, including malignancy. However, difficult locations like the periampullary region are problematic and major surgical procedures, for example, pancreaticoduodenectomy is necessary for total resection. These have a high complication rate resulting in a poor quality of life, especially in children and young adults. Here, we describe a case of duodenal duplication cyst managed by robotic (transduodenal) excision along with a brief review of the literature.
