Abstract

Esophageal duplications have an estimated incidence of about 1 in 8,000 live births. They arise as epithelial-lined outpouchings of the primitive foregut and evolve to produce either cystic or tubular structures that do not communicate with the esophageal lumen. Cysts account for 80% of the duplications and are usually single fluid-filled structures found attached to the esophagus or to the tracheobronchial tree usually located within the right posterior inferior mediastinum (Long and Orlando 2010).
