A patient with a symptomatic duodenal duplication cyst demonstrated by endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is presented. This lesion usually does not communicate with duodenal lumen but should be added to the list of eystic duodenal lesions demonstrable by ERCP. ERCP preoperatively is helpful to the surgeon in isolating adjacent duct structures but cyst wall histology is mandatory for correct anatomic diagnosis as this lesion has often been confused with Type III choledochal cysts.
