An infant with thoracic spina bifida, myelomeningocele and hydrocephalus was found to have intrathoracic gastric duplication and noncontiguous tubular duplication along two-thirds of the small bowel. The myelomeningocele was closed and the hydrocephalus relieved with a shunt. The intrathoracic duplication was excised in toto and the intra-abdominal malformation successfully treated by stripping the entire mucosal tube from within the duplication.
