Intestinal duplication is a rare developmental abnormality. All areas of the gut may be affected but the rectum is the least common site. Malignant change has been reported in five previous rectal duplications and all presented directly as a result of symptoms of the adenocarcinoma. In the present case, symptoms resulting from an ischiorectal sinus had preceded the development of adenocarcinoma for twenty years.
