Abstract :
Esophageal duplication cyst (EDC) is classified as a subgroup of foregut duplication cyst. They are very rare and predominantly detected in children.

We conclude that foregut duplication cyst of the esophagus is very rare, and must be considered in the differential diagnosis of persistent wheezing in infants who do not respond to conventional treatment.....
