Duplications of the alimentary canal are an infrequent pathology and may be localised in any part of the digestive tract.

The authors report the case of a 13-year-old patient with a duplicate ileal tract which remained asymptomatic until hospitalisation was required, whose symptoms at onset resembled the clinical manifestations of acute appendicitis.
