Meckel's diverticulum and bowel obstruction due to phytobezoar: a case report.
Pediatr Med Chir. 2016 Jun 27; 38(2):117.PM

Abstract

Meckel's diverticulum is a common anomaly of the gastrointestinal tract. The most common complications of Meckel's diverticulum are inflammation, bleeding and obstruction. We present a 12-year-old boy with bowel obstruction due to phytobezoar in a Meckel's diverticulum. We describe diagnostic difficulties and our surgery approach comparing it to the literature.
