Gastrointestinal duplications are rare congenital anomalies in children. The most common site being jejunum and ileum, followed by mediastinum, colon, stomach, duodenum and rectum. Esophageal duplication cysts accounts for twenty percent. Majority of them are detected in childhood and treated. A very small percentage can present in adult population posing diagnostic challenges due to the clinical presentations. Minimal access surgery has obviated the need for thoracotomy. Herein we share our experience of treating four symptomatic esophageal duplication cysts in adults, by minimally invasive approach.
