Intestinal duplication in a patient with neurofibromatosis: aid of ultrasound and CT scan in diagnosis.
A 5-year-old boy with neurofibromatosis is described, whose symptoms of abdominal pain and vomiting were due to an intestinal duplication. Intestinal duplication has not been previously reported as a cause of gastrointestinal symptoms in neurofibromatosis. The utilization of ultrasound and computerized tomography scan as useful modalities for the diagnosis of duplication of the bowel is described.
