Abstract:   (49 Views)
Introduction: Meckel's diverticulum (MD) is a congenital anomaly. that is often detected by chance. When it presents symptomatically, it causes painless gastrointestinal bleesing. Nevertheless, in rare instances, it can cause acute intestinal obstraction,  often obscuring the true clinical picture.
Case presentation: The referring patient was a young woman with abdominal pain and vomiting. The initial diagnosis of obstruction led to laparotomy and intestinal anastomosis resection, and the final diagnosis was intestinal obstruction caused by Meckel's diverticulum. The patient underwent surgery and after the first visit, she was discharged from the hospital without any problem.
Conclusion:  Although MD is relatively rare in adults, it should be considered in the list of differential diagnosis in patients with intussusception leading to small bowel obstruction, especially in instances when a history of the most common causes of obstruction, including postoperative adhesions and hernias is not remarkable.
