1.  Ileal Duplication Cyst Causing Recurrent Abdominal Pain and Melena 
Alimentary tract duplications are rare congenital anomalies. The presentation depends on their anatomical location, size and other characteristics. The most common variety is small bowel cystic duplication. We report a case of an eight years old girl who presented with recurrent abdominal pain and melena. Radioisotope technetium scan showed increased uptake of tracer in right lower abdomen and a diagnosis of Meckel’s diverticulum made. At surgery a cystic, communicating, ileal duplication found which was resected along with adjacent gut. It is thus reiterated that while investigating children with recurrent abdominal pain and melena, gut duplications must be included in the differential diagnosis.
