Objective: Author demonstrates case of enteral cystic duplicature located between coccyx and rectum in peripartal period.

Design: Case report.

Setting: Masarykova městská nemocnice, Jilemnice.

Subject and method: Case of enteral cystic duplicature in adult, 25–29 year female, first case after natural birth, second one in the end of second pregnancy. Open surgical solution with exstirpation.

Conclusion: Cystic duplication of the rectum belongs to congenital anomalies, rarely occurring even in adulthood. The second opinion and quality preoperative diagnostics played a key role in the case, leading in both cases to primary, complete exstirpation, without any reoperation or complications. The surgical approach was chosen parasacral section, laterally differentiated according to the location of the dominant part of the cyst.
