A 7-year-old, female European shorthair cat with a history of recurrent vomiting had a 2-cm cystic mass in the midjejunum. Cross-sectioning and histology revealed 3 separate cystic structures in the muscular layer, in addition to a regularly structured intestinal lumen. One cyst had a 3-layered wall consisting of a dysplastic mucosa, a regularly structured submucosa, and partly double-layered muscularis that sporadically contained neurons resembling a myenteric plexus. The remaining 2 cysts had similar structures except for granulation tissue lining the lumen. The lesion was diagnosed as multiple cystic duplications in the midjejunum, which is unknown to the veterinary literature to date.
