Duodenal duplications are rare observations which can be diagnosed during early pregnancy via US scan. In the neonate they are often cause for intestinal occlusions. Surgical treatment can be limited by the duplication's anatomical interrelationships with adjacent organs. Biliary sludge is an uncommon finding in the first year of life, and can readily regress spontaneously. The association between duodenal duplication and sludge has never been described in the literature in the neonatal period. Here, for the first time, we report on the case of a newborn infant with cystic duplication of the duodenum associated with sludge in a misshapen gallbladder.

Abstract

Duodenal duplications are rare observations which can be diagnosed during early pregnancy via US scan. In the neonate they are often cause for intestinal occlusions. Surgical treatment can be limited by the duplication's anatomical interrelationships with adjacent organs. Biliary sludge is an uncommon finding in the first year of life, and can readily regress spontaneously. The association between duodenal duplication and sludge has never been described in the literature in the neonatal period. Here, for the first time, we report on the case of a newborn infant with cystic duplication of the duodenum associated with sludge in a misshapen gallbladder.
