This paper reports a case of pyloric duplication, an extremely rare abnormality usually discovered during infancy. Clinical findings involved mainly symptoms of obstruction and radiological evaluation included abdominal US, plain radiography and CT imaging. Pyloric duplication was diagnosed by US and confirmed by CT scans and surgery. This case shows that when the sign of two-layer pattern is present in US scans, a conclusive diagnosis for alimentary tract duplications can be reached and there is no need for further radiological evaluation.
