Figure 3: During surgical exploration a 6 cm length by 2 cm diameter tubular intestinal duplication arising from the mesenteric border was found in a distance of 1.5 m from the ileocecal valve, removed en block with the adjacent segment of the normal intestine and was shown to communicate with the later via a caudal small foramen. (a) Intraoperative photo of the duplication (arrow) before resection. Of notice, the shape similarity with the planar static image. The abudance of dilated subserosal vessels, suggestive of local inflammation, explains the hyperemia observed in the flow study; (b) histological section (H and E, ×100) shows gastric mucosa of body type lining the lumen of the duplication. A muscular layer common to the duplication and the adjacent normal intestine was also identified
