Gastric duplication cyst (GDC) in adults is an extremely rare congenital anomaly. Here, we report the case of a GDC containing gastrointestinal stromal tumour (GIST) in a 60-year-old male patient who presented with abdominal pain. Laparoscopic resection with safe margins was performed following endosonographic localisation of the lesion. Pathologic evaluation revealed GDC containing GIST, and all surgical margins were free from tumours. The patient was discharged with good condition after 2 days and after 3 months of follow-up, the patient was symptom free and had no complications. Gastric duplication is a rare disease and may contain heterotopic tissue or even neoplastic lesions. Definite treatment is complete surgical removal that can be achieved laparoscopically with the aid of intraoperative ultrasonography for precise localisation of the indeterminate lesions.
