ABSTRACT: Duplications of the alimentary tract are rare. Foregut duplications with infradiaphragmatic extensions are very rare. We are reporting 3 cases of thoraco-abdominal duplication cysts, each of which had its own mode of presentation. One child with recurrent attacks of respiratory tract infections was treated as loculated empyema on the right side of the chest, and was subsequently referred for decortication. The 2nd child presented with acute respiratory distress. The 3rd child was diagnosed as thoracic cyst by antenatal ultrasonogram. This child was referred to us in the neonatal period for further management. Each case was a therapeutic challenge in its own way. Two cases were operated of which one expired.
