Enteric duplications are rare congenital anomalies that can occur along the entire length of the gastrointestinal system. Their most common location is the small intestine, mostly the terminal ileum. Almost 70% of the cases present within 1 st year of life. The common symptoms include abdominal pain, vomiting, distension and constipation. Ultrasound, computed tomography scan and magnetic resonance imaging are useful in diagnosing the lesion. Excision of the duplication cyst is the treatment of choice. This is a case report of an 8-year-old male child who presented with enteric duplication cyst, which was attached to the terminal ileum with no communication with the bowel lumen. The cyst was excised and the child made a satisfactory recovery.
