Abstract: The case report of an injury to the Meckel’s diverticulum after penetrating injury to the abdomen (stab right flank) is presented. While there was no initial proof of intra-abdominal injury, the patient was admitted for observation, and developed peritoneal signs within 6 hours. We report right flank stab wound which resulted in a simultaneous injury of Meckel’s diverticulum and small bowel without any obvious manifestations of internal organ injury. After laparotomy with ileal segmental resection and primary anastomosis, an uneventful recovery followed. Key words: Abdomen, Abdominal Injuries, Laparatomy, Meckel Diverticulum, Stab Wounds.
