Double duodenal atresia is a rare disease and twenty-two cases have been reported in the English literature. We report here a case of double duodenal atresia that had been suspected by fetal ultrasonography as polyhydramnios and a large cyst at the right upper abdomen. Two membranous diaphragms at the duodenum separated the duodenal lumen and formed a cystic lesion. Surgical reconstruction was performed.
