ions of the oesophagus are rare congenital abnormalities and rarely comunicate with the oesophageal lumen. They are com - monly associated with other congenital malformations, such as spinal deformities, congenital heart disease, vertebral anomalies, malrota - tion of the bowel, Meckel’s diverticulum. During a percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy, performed becau - se of a neurological dysphagia, the endoscopy revealed a very rare case of a 26-year old man affected by Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome, with an asymptomatic oesophageal duplication that communicated proxi - mally and distally.
