Abstract

Enteric duplication cysts are cysts that are attached to the alimentary tract and that are lined by some type of gastrointestinal mucosa. Such cysts are especially rare when found in the oral cavity. We report the case of an 8-month-old female with an unusual duplication cyst in the anterior two-thirds of the tongue. Eighteen cases of intraoral cysts have been previously reported in the literature, this one being the 7th case of a true duplication cyst of the anterior two-thirds of the tongue which contains gastric mucosa. The case presents many aspects of the diagnosis and management of this unusual lesion. The literature and present etiological theories are disccussed.
