Tubular duplication of esophagus:
Rare congenital malformations require
individualized and innovative procedures

Naeem-uz-Zafar Khan1, Col. Mansoor2, Anwar-ul-Haq3, Abid Qazi4

ABSTRACT

Rare congenital problems generally have no standardized diagnostic or operative technique. Because of some variation within the spectrum, diagnosis and management has to be individualized and tailored according to the local findings to relieve the symptoms. We report a diagnostic dilemma and surgical management of a child with proximal tubular duplication of esophagus with complete remission of symptoms after surgery. To diagnose rare malformations a high index of suspicion is required when differential diagnoses are being considered.

KEY WORDS: Tubular Esophageal Duplication, Rare Anomaly, Individualized Treatment.
