Gastrointestinal tract duplications are infrequent congenital abnormalities that can occur anywhere throughout the alimentary tract. There are several theories about this abnormality but none of them clearly describes this clinical problem. Duplications are hard to diagnose. Most of the cases present in the first two years of life, but in rare conditions it can be remain silence or cannot diagnosed till adulthood.
We present a case with combined anomaly, tubular duplication on left colon and also webs on the right colon and terminal ileum, in a 21-year old young woman. Her symptoms were abdominal pain and chronic constipation since childhood and she has been treated with total proctocolectomy and reconstructed with ileal J-pouch.
