Duodenal duplication cysts are rare congenital abnormalities that are most commonly diagnosed in infancy and childhood. However, in rare cases, the lesion can remain asymptomatic until adulthood. An extremely rare case of a previously healthy young adult patient with recurrent acute pancreatitis, who was diagnosed with a duodenal duplication cyst, is presented. At laparotomy, a duplication cyst measuring 3.8 cm × 2.8 cm was found posteromedial to the 2 nd part of duodenum impinging over the head of pancreas. Cyst was excised. The patient is healthy and asymptomatic 1 year after surgery. The present case illustrates the necessity of considering a duodenal duplication cyst in the differential diagnosis of recurrent acute pancreatitis.
