Foregut duplication cyst is a rare congenital anomaly in children. Most of the children are asymptomatic and are diagnosed incidentally when evaluated for other problems. Complications include infection, rupture, and malignant transformation. Here, we present a case of complicated foregut duplication cyst in a 10-year-old female which mimicked tubercular spondylitis on imaging.
