This report describes a rare case of two synchronous gastric duplication cysts in a 56-year-old woman. The larger gastric duplication cyst was identified on ultrasonography and computed tomography, whereas the smaller duplication cyst was identified on gastroscopic examination. The patient underwent open surgical excision of the cysts and had an uneventful recovery.
Keywords: gastic duplication cyst, gastrointestinal duplication
