A 7-week-old child presented to the pediatrician after persistent vomiting and abdominal distension developed. Intestinal dilatation had been detected in utero. Emergency ultrasonography showed only small bowel dilatation. There were no signs of intestinal obstruction; however, complete intestinal malrotation was demonstrated by an upper gastrointestinal series and barium enema. Intestinal duplication was also suspected, and emergency laparotomy was performed.

A 70-cm-long jejunoileal duplication was found and successfully dissected free from the normal small bowel and excised without intestinal resection-anastomosis. The authors describe this unique case and the surgical technique for the treatment of small bowel duplications.
