Duplications of the alimentary tract are unusual congenital anomalies that often present a diagnostic, as well as therapeutic challenge to the treating surgeon. These lesions occur infrequently and are often not suspected until encountered intraoperatively. Due to the complicated anatomy and involvement of the adjacent bowel, appropriate management requires familiarity with the anatomy and clinico-pathological characteristics. This review article is a treatise on intestinal duplications which addresses the current understanding, their epidemiology, classification, etiogenesis, management options and prognosis.
