meckel's diverticulum

A Michael, D Benedict, I Razali, S N Jasjit, A A Zainal
Meckel's diverticulitis or Meckel's associated pathology frequently presents in childhood with gastrointestinal bleeding. It is rarely seen in adults. It is a congenital abnormality that commonly goes undetected. We present a case of a perforated Meckel's diverticulum due to fishbone ingestion in an elderly gentleman. The aim of this case report is to highlight the rare presentation of a perforation in a Meckel's diverticulum due to an extrinsic pathology and to outline diagnostic and management options in cases of Meckel's diverticulum...

INTRODUCTION: Meckel's diverticulum is a common malformation in children, usually asymptomatic, with complications in only 20% of cases. Exceptionally, a tumor can develop in Meckel's diverticulum in children, particularly Burkitt's lymphoma; in adults it can develop into a gastrointestinal stromal tumor, a leiomyosarcoma, or a neuroendocrine tumor such as a carcinoid tumor. The diagnosis of inflammatory pseudotumor following an insidious perforation is rare. OBSERVATION: We report the case of a 14-month-old boy who presented with fever, asthenia, food refusal, and digestive complaints such as vomiting and tender abdomen suggesting appendicitis...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Various modalities have been used to diagnose Meckel's diverticulum (MD) in practice, but with their diagnostic accuracy deemed to be unsatisfactory for clinical practice. Moreover, the usefulness of these modalities has not been evaluated for the diagnosis of bleeding MD in adults, due to the relative rarity of this condition. Therefore, the aim of our multicenter study was to determine the most accurate modality for the preoperative diagnosis of bleeding MD in adults...

A 56-year-old male presented to the hospital with complaint of abdominal pain. On clinical evaluation, the patient had features suggestive of perforation peritonitis. Blood indices revealed leukocytosis, hemoconcentration, and pre-renal azotemia. Relevant CT scan images delineating the pathology have been uploaded. Surgical intervention with small-bowel resection was performed for perforated Meckel's diverticulitis. Post-operative course was uneventful.

INTRODUCTION: Meckel's diverticulum is a common congenital abnormality of gastrointestinal tract in children. Planar scintigraphy using Technetium-99m pertechnetate is widely used in the diagnosis of Meckel's diverticulum. Single photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography (SPECT/CT) fusion imaging may help to locate the Meckel's diverticulum lesion. We now present a Meckel's diverticulum case which tends to be missed. CASE DESCRIPTION: The patient was diagnosed with Mecke's diverticulum by planar scintigraphy in 2007...

Meckel's diverticular perforation is a rare cause of acute abdomen during pregnancy. We report the case of a 24-year-old woman at 24 weeks of gestation who presented with abdominal pain for 4 days accompanied with abdominal distension, tenderness and guarding in right lower quadrant. Ultrasonography was inconclusive. The patient underwent exploratory laparotomy with the clinical suspicion of appendicular perforation peritonitis. Intraoperatively, a perforated Meckel's diverticulum was detected. Owing to gross contamination of the peritoneal cavity, a diverticulectomy with ileostomy was performed...

Meckel's diverticulum (MD) is the most common congenital anomaly of the gastrointestinal tract. Most often is asymptomatic but it may give a number of complications including gastrointestinal bleeding, obstruction and inflammation. Axial torsion and gangrene of MD are exceptional. The correct diagnosis of MD could only be made during surgery. Early surgery is important to reduce morbidity, especially perforation. Laparoscopy aided in the diagnosis and adequate treatment. We herein describe the case of a 4-year-old boy with axial torsion of MD...

Meckel's diverticulum is the most frequent congenital malformation of the gastrointestinal tract, occurring in 2% of the general population. Meckel's diverticulum is usually asymptomatic and found incidentally. However, the lifetime risk of complications is 4-40%. In this essay, we describe the clinical and imaging findings in 12 cases of Meckel's diverticula with complications over a 5-year period, which were confirmed pathologically. The major complications of Meckel's diverticulum include gastrointestinal bleeding, bowel obstruction, perforation and inflammation...

A congenital hernia into the base of the umbilical cord is known as an exomphalos and when the size of the defect is 5 cm or less and containing only bowel, it is called as exomphalos minor. We present a case of a newborn with an exomphalos minor within a Meckel diverticulum. He underwent surgical resection of the Meckel diverticulum and repair of the abdominal wall defect. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of Meckel diverticulum in an exomphalos minor in Korea.

Introduction. The aim of the study was to evaluate our children who are operated on for anomalous congenital band while increasing the awareness of this rare reason of intestinal obstruction in children which causes a diagnostic challenge. Patients and Methods. We retrospectively reviewed the records of fourteen children treated surgically for intestinal obstructions caused by anomalous congenital bands. Results. The bands were located between the following regions: the ascending colon and the mesentery of the terminal ileum in 4 patients, the jejunum and mesentery of the terminal ileum in 3 patients, the ileum and mesentery of the terminal ileum in 2 patients, the ligament of Treitz and mesentery of the jejunum in one patient, the ligament of Treitz and mesentery of the terminal ileum in one patient, duodenum and duodenum in one patient, the ileum and mesentery of the ileum in one patient, the jejunum and mesentery of the jejunum in one patient, and Meckel's diverticulum and its ileal mesentery in one patient...

Meckel's Diverticulum is the most common congenital malformation of the gastrointestinal tract with a prevalence of 2 % in the general population, being twice as common and symptomatic in males. Not seldom is the diagnosis made incidentally, upon laparotomy for other intra-abdominal conditions, namely acute appendicitis. Simple Diverticulectomy is the surgical treatment of choice. We present the case of S.M., a 38 year-old male who was admitted to the Surgery Department of the Bucharest Clinical Emergency Hospital for sudden onset of initially periumbilical pain, which later migrated and localized in the right iliac fossa (RIF) accompanied by vomiting after the onset of pain, approximately 24 hours prior to admission...
