Gastric duplication cyst is a rare condition typically seen in children. They comprise 9% of all gastrointestinal duplications. The etiology is not clearly understood. In adults, gastric duplication cysts are especially rare and typically asymptomatic. They are most often incidental findings. Yet, they do have malignant potential and every effort should be made to perform a complete resection without intra-abdominal spillage of the cyst contents. Here, we present the case of a 53-year-old female with a large symptomatic cystic mass thought to arise from the left adrenal gland based on CT findings. Intra-operatively, the cyst was separate from the adrenal but connected to the greater curve of the stomach. The cyst was removed laparoscopically in its entirety and without rupture. Final pathology was consistent with a 11.5cm gastric duplication cyst lined with respiratory, enteric and pancreatic epithelium.
