Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

3 Scopus citations


Gastric duplication cysts are an extremely rare anomaly with few reported cases in association with accessory pancreatic tissue. Diagnosis can be challenging given a presentation of recurrent pancreatitis and resemblance to pancreatic pseudocysts. We report the case of a 6-year old boy with multiple episodes of pancreatitis who was discovered to have an accessory pancreatic lobe connected to a gastric duplication cyst, successfully treated with surgical excision.
