Gallstone Ileus Treated by Incidental Meckel's Diverticulectomy.

Cureus 2021 Mar 24;13(3):e14078. Epub 2021 Mar 24.

Department of Surgery, West Virginia University, Martinsburg, USA.

Gallstone ileus is an uncommon cause of intestinal obstruction in the elderly.

Department of Surgery, Cheng Hsin General Hospital, Taipei, Taiwan. Electronic address:

Introduction: The etiology for intestinal obstruction is often difficult to determine especially in a young patient with a virgin abdomen. Differential diagnosis may include congenital abnormalities such as a more common Meckel's diverticulum but also a rarer mesenteric type internal hernia. Although the definite diagnosis is not as important in an acute setting and diagnosis is often made postoperatively, the preoperative differential diagnosis including the two should be considered for successful management.
