Introduction and importance Meckel’s diverticulum (MD) is a vestigial remnant of the omphalomesenteric duct, representing the most common congenital malformation of the gastrointestinal tract. Diagnosis of MD is a challenge because of its rarity and frequent asymptomaticity. Radiological exams generally aren’t useful for its diagnosis. Intestinal o...

Pancreatic heterotopia most commonly occurs in the upper gastrointestinal tract, but can occur in other sites, including Meckel's diverticulum. When multiple histologic elements of the pancreatic tissue (acini, ducts, and endocrine cells) are present, the diagnosis is typically straightforward. In this article, we report a rare case of pure endocri...

Meckel’s diverticulum is a true diverticulum caused by the incomplete obliteration of the vitelline duct during gestation. It is the most common congenital malformation of the gastrointestinal tract. Meckel’s diverticulum is a rare presentation in adults, especially because symptomatic patients present in early childhood. We present a 57-year-old w...

BackgroundMeckel’s diverticulum is the most frequent congenital anomaly of the gastrointestinal tract. It can invert or invaginate into the small intestine lumen. It is usually associated with heterotopic tissue elements.Case presentationWe present a case of inverted Meckel's diverticulum, clinically and radiologically diagnosed as intestinal obstr...
Clinical case reports
Meckel's diverticulum (MD) is a rare congenital abnormality. Not all MD require resection. MD is resected when it is symptomatic; when it causes perforation, bleeding, or intestinal obstruction; or when malignancy is confirmed or suspected. © 2020 The Authors.

BackgroundMeckel’s diverticulum (MD) is the commonest congenital abnormality of the gastrointestinal tract that occurs in 2% of general population. It remains asymptomatic, but it may lead to life-threatening complications. These complications may be misdiagnosed with other gastrointestinal disorders like acute appendicitis, making its diagnosis ch...

Obscure gastrointestinal bleeding (OGIB) accounts for a small percentage of gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding. The underlying etiology includes small bowel lesions such as Meckel’s diverticulum, a differential to be considered in a young adult. Capsule endoscopy and double balloon enteroscopy (DBE) are important imaging modalities used in the evaluati...

The etiology for intestinal obstruction is often difficult to determine especially in a young patient with a virgin abdomen. Differential diagnosis may include congenital abnormalities such as a more common Meckel's diverticulum but also a rarer mesenteric type internal hernia. Although the definite diagnosis is not as important in an acute setting...

BackgroundMeckel’s diverticula are a rare cause of small intestinal strangulation, diagnosed at laparotomy or necropsy. This congenital anomaly of the gastrointestinal tract originates from a remnant of the vitelline duct. In reported equine cases, they present as a full-thickness diverticulum on the antimesenteric border of the distal jejunum or p...

We report our experience with two patients who underwent omphalomesenteric duct resection: one for a patent omphalomesenteric duct and the other for a Meckel diverticulum connected to the umbilicus by a fibrous cord. We used an intraumbilical round incision and a transumbilical vertical incision, respectively. The first patient was a neonate with a...
