The present case report described the acute presentation, diagnosis and management of a primary gastrointestinal stromal tumour (GIST) of the ileum. A male patient (age, 51 years) was admitted to Maggiore Hospital (Parma, Italy) due to presenting with fever, dysuria and lower abdominal pain. Ultrasonography and computed tomography showed a 7,5×5,5-cm pelvic mass containing air and purulent fluid indicative of an intraperitoneal abscess. The patient was subjected to diagnostic laparoscopy, which revealed a huge, soft cystic mass arising from the small bowel...

We report a rare case of heterotopic gastric mucosa presenting in a jejunal polyp of a 9-year-old girl, diagnosed with capsule endoscopy and laparoscopic exploration, after a 15-month history of lower gastrointestinal bleeding and anaemia. During surgery, the jejunal segment containing the polyp was resected and pathological examination revealed a polyp with gastric heterotopia. Heterotopic gastric mucosa is a rare pathology characterised by the presence of gastric mucosa outside of the stomach. Heterotopic gastric mucosa usually occurs in the oesophagus, duodenum, Meckel's diverticulum and enteric duplication cysts...

Intussusception is a pediatric abdominal emergency in early childhood involving telescoping of 1 part of the bowel into another part. In most children, the condition is idiopathic with no identifiable lead point. Meckel diverticulum is the most common lead point, followed by polyps and duplication cysts. We describe a case of a boy with intussusception caused by a duplication cyst that was drawn retrograde through the ileocecal valve. The patient presented after a 3-month period of symptomatology and had been considered to have constipation before signs of intestinal obstruction developed...

Introduction. Vitelline artery remnants are rare causes of intra-abdominal bands leading to bowel obstruction. These bands may be associated with Meckel's diverticulum. Double inferior vena cava (IVC) is a rare presentation and is usually identified incidentally. Case Presentation. A sixty-year-old male presented with progressive vomiting for five days and he was clinically diagnosed with intestinal obstruction. Plain X-ray abdomen showed evidence of small bowel obstruction. CT scan of the abdomen revealed dilated small bowel loops with a small outpouching in the distal ileum with a band like structure attached to it...

This report describes a two-month-old girl who presented with signs and symptoms of a distal small bowel obstruction. She underwent an abdominal ultrasound that revealed a right lower quadrant cystic mass. A Technetium-99 scan revealed increased activity in the right lower quadrant consistent with a Meckel's diverticulum. Following a nondiagnostic laparoscopic evaluation, a laparotomy was performed to allow direct palpation of the small bowel and colon. Direct palpation of the ileum revealed a soft intraluminal mass at the ileocecal valve...

Meckel's diverticulum may sometimes present as an intraluminal polypoid mass causing small bowel obstruction; however, gastrointestinal bleeding due to Meckel's diverticulum with a polypoid lesion is rare. A 14-year-old girl presented with tarry stool and syncope in our hospital. Laboratory examination showed iron-deficiency anemia with a low hemoglobin level of 5.8 g/dl. The bleeding site was detected by neither upper gastrointestinal endoscopy nor colonoscopy. Transanal double-balloon enteroscopy showed a diverticulum with an ulceration at a site approximately 50 cm from the ileocecal valve and a polypoid lesion inside of the diverticulum...

Meckel's diverticulum (MD) is estimated to affect 1%-2% of the general population, and it represents a clinically silent finding of a congenital anomaly in up to 85% of the cases. In adults, MD may cause symptoms, such as overt occult lower gastrointestinal bleeding. The diagnostic imaging workup includes computed tomography scan, magnetic resonance imaging enterography, technetium 99m scintigraphy (99mTc) using either labeled red blood cells or pertechnetate (known as the Meckel's scan) and angiography. The preoperative detection rate of MD in adults is low, and many patients ultimately undergo exploratory laparoscopy...

Meckel diverticulum is the most common gastrointestinal (GI) anomaly, occurring in 2% of the population. This condition often presents symptomatically similar to acute appendicitis in children. The most common presentation is GI hemorrhage, followed closely by obstruction due to intussusception. Laparoscopy is the standard in both diagnosing and treating a complicated Meckel diverticulum.

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 diverticulum (MD) is the most common congenital abnormality of gastrointestinal tract. Tough believed to occur in 2% of population, most of them remain veiled because majority are clinically asymptomatic and remain obscure in radiological examination. CLINICAL FINDINGS AND DIAGNOSIS: A 26-year-old male with episodic black colored stool since last 10 years. Tough symptomatic, diagnosis of pathological lesion, and the bleeding site could not be established with any of the sophisticated diagnostic technique...

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...

BACKGROUND: The aim of the present study was to evaluate cases in which intussusception was unsuccessfully treated with pneumatic reduction (PR), and intussusception recurred following PR. METHODS: The medical records of 401 patients who presented with intussusception between 2003 and 2014 were retrospectively analyzed. Included were 61 patients, 20 of whom underwent unsuccessful PR (Group 1), and 41 of whom experienced intussusception recurrence following PR (Group 2)...

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.

BACKGROUND: Although adhesions account for more than 70% of small bowel obstruction (SBO), they are thought to be less likely aetiologies in patients without previous abdominal surgery. Expedient surgery has historically been advocated as prudent management in these patients. Emerging evidence appears to challenge such a dogmatic approach. METHODS: A retrospective analysis was performed in all SBO patients with a virgin abdomen admitted between January 2012 and August 2014...

Single-balloon enteroscopy (SBE) is designed for identifying possible small bowel lesions with balloon-assisted enteroscopy that allows deep intubation of the intestine. However, data regarding the outcome and safety of SBE remain limited. We conducted this study to evaluate the outcome and safety of anterograde and retrograde SBE approaches. This retrospective review from a tertiary medical center in Taiwan included endoscopic reports and chart data from 128 patients with 200 anterograde and retrograde procedures from September 2009 to November 2014...

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...
