Gastrointestinal duplications are rare congenital anomalies, usually detected prenatally or in the first two years of life, although they can be diagnosed even in older age. Small bowel location is the most frequent (more than 50% of cases). The objective of this film is to demonstrate an ileocaeal resection for duplication of the terminal small bowel, which has been suggested during the CT-scan examination. It will be confirmed by the pathological examination and the histological study.
