Esophageal duplication cysts ( EDC) are congenital anomalies of foregut origin. Supposed to occur at gastrulation stage of embryonic development. Etiopathogenesis is unclear.
Incidence is 1 in 8200 individuals. Intraabdominal EDC are extremely rare. Symptoms include cough, dysphagia , substernal pain and regurgitation.
CECT proves to be a useful diagnostic tool but histopathological examination is confirmatory.
Treatment is surgical excision in which minimally invasive surgery is now the treatment of choice.
Intraoperative ICG aids in safe dissection and excision of cyst and prevents damage to major vessels. This presentation highlights technique of laparoscopic excision of this rare entity.
