Duplication of the oesophagus has ranges from complete duplication which is very rare to a partial cystic duplication (also known as duplication cyst). The oesophagus is the second most common site after the ileum to be involved with gastrointestinal duplication. It commonly manifests in neonates and children. The adults are usually asymptomatic. In this report, we describe a case of an adult male presenting with dysphagia because of a lower oesophageal duplication cyst. The diagnostic features and treatment options are discussed.
