Laparoscopic Diagnosis and Excision of a Giant Sigmoid Cystic Duplication

Mirko Bertozzi, Antonino Appignani
2014 CRSLS MIS Case Reports from SLS  
The authors report a very rare case of giant duplication of sigmoid colon in a 4-year-old girl successfully diagnosed and treated with a laparoscopy-assisted technique. This case shows that laparoscopy is useful in definitive diagnosis of giant cystic masses with a preoperative undiagnosed origin. Laparoscopy-assisted treatment of these benign masses may be realized, even in difficult cases such as the one described.
