Pol Merkur Lekarski. 2015 Jun; 38(228):332-4.PM

Abstract

Meckel diverticulum is the most common congenital defect of samll intestine. In most cases it remains asymptomatic, however in some patients it may be the cause of many nonspecific signs and symptoms. In this paper we would like to present a case of intestinal obstruction caused by Meckel diverticulum intussusception in the ileum in 19- year-old patient. The patient complaint of dull abdominal pain which have been subsiding for hours and vomiting. Results of laboratory test were within normal limits. Abdomian X-ray suggested mechanic obstruction of small intestine. Patient was qualified for urgent surgery. During the operation intussusception of 10 cm of small intestine was found. The leading point of intussusception was long Meckel diverticulum with single, small connection with omentum. The authors wish to note that in the differential diagnosis of non-specific, recurrent pain and mechanical small bowel obstruction, regardless of age, the presence of Meckel diverticulum should always be taken into consideration.
