Abstract:

Segmental dilatation of the intestine is an unusual malformation with a poorly understood etiology. It occurs most commonly in the ileum, followed by the colon and jejunum. Congenital Segmental Duodenal Dilatation (CSDD), defined as a localized dilatation of the duodenum without a distal obstruction, is extremely rare, with only 5 cases previously reported in the literature, with none of these originating from Africa. Herein, we describe a case of CSDD presenting to a tertiary pediatric hospital in South Africa.
