Resumen

GUASTAVINO, Andrés; RAPPA, Julio César; MANDIROLA, Fernando  y  VARELA, Daniel. Gastric duplication cyst in the adult: a rare entity. Rev. cir. [online]. 2020, vol.72, n.2, pp.155-159. ISSN 2452-4557.  http://dx.doi.org/10.35687/s2452-45492020002460.

Aim

To report the clinical case of a gastric duplication cyst in an adult patient.

Materials and Method

70 year old male patient with a symptomatic supramesocolic cystic lesion. Preoperative imagenology was not able to determine the exact origin or etiology. Several differential diagnosis were made and finally an exploratory laparotomy was performed.

Results

The laparotomy determined the gastric origin and a complete resection including gastric wall was done. The anatomopathological study confirmed it was a gastric duplication cyst.

Discussion

Gastric duplication cysts are a rare congenital disease, diagnosed mainly in the neonatal stage, with rare presentation in the adult stage. Most of these lesions are unique, non-communicating, usually asymptomatic and difficult to diagnose preoperatively, with definitive diagnosis being common in intraoperative and histological study of the piece.

Conclusion

The gastric duplication cyst must be taken into account in the differential diagnosis of any supramesocolic cystic lesion. They are potentially malignant lesions, and complete resection provides the definitive diagnosis and treatment.
