Journal Article (Journal Article)

Alimentary tract duplication is a rare congenital malformation that usually presents with gastrointestinal obstruction. Colonic duplication is associated with other anomalies as duplication of the anus and genitourinary tract.

We present a case of a newborn that presented with a double bubble sign in a prenatal ultrasound that resulted to be the colonic duplication and not the typical duodenal obstruction.
