A case of strangulated small bowel obstruction caused by Meckel's diverticulum in an adult.
ABSTRACT Meckel's diverticulum results from incomplete closure of the omphalomesenteric duct, and is the most common congenital anomaly of the small intestine. We present a case report of a 42-year-old patient who developed a strangulated intestinal obstruction as a complication of Meckel's diverticulum. The strangulated bowel obstruction was suggested by contrast-enhanced computed tomography. He recovered after a diverticulectomy and had no need for a small bowel resection.
