A 3-year-old boy who suffered from severe colicky abdominal pain is presented. Laboratory studies, including ultrasound, upper gastrointestinal films, and 99mTc-scan, were interpreted as normal. On exploration of the abdomen a tubular duplication of the small bowel was found. The duplication had a common mesentery with the normal bowel. By meticulous dissection the duplication was resected without interfering with the blood supply of the normal bowel. The entire duplication was found to be covered by gastric mucosa.
