Chicago Medical School at Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science, North Chicago, IL, USA.

Meckel's diverticulum is a congenital anomaly leading to the formation of a true diverticulum in the distal small intestine. Though most are asymptomatic and discovered incidentally, Meckel's diverticuli can give rise to a wide range of symptoms. Rarely, this can be a malignancy, most commonly a carcinoid tumor. Read More

Jejunal diverticulosis - A case series and literature review.

Douglas Chung

Ann Med Surg (Lond) 2022 Mar 3;75:103477. Epub 2022 Mar 3.

Campbelltown Hospital, Therry Road, Campbelltown, NSW, 2560, Australia.

Introduction: Scant literature is available regarding in vivo jejunal diverticulosis, in part due to its typically asymptomatic course. This is made more difficult by the difficulty in establishing its diagnosis. This case series examines a number of patients presenting to our hospital with jejunal diverticular disease, and their varying clinical courses. Read More

Persistent omphalomesenteric duct and urachus presenting as an umbilical hernia.

BMJ Case Rep 2022 Apr 1;15(4). Epub 2022 Apr 1.

Department of General Surgery, King Edward Memorial and Seth Gordhandas Sunderdas Medical College, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India.

Vitellointestinal duct anomalies, although one of the most frequent malformations to be found (2%-3% in population), they are most unlikely to cause symptoms. A persistent Vitellointestinal duct can induce abdominal pain, bowel obstruction, intestinal haemorrhage and umbilical sinus, fistula or hernia which commonly occurs in children. Patent vitellointestinal duct or persistent omphalomesenteric duct is a very unusual congenital anomaly which occurs in 2% of the population related to the embryonic yolk stalk. Read More

An Uncommon Case of Intraluminal Duodenal Diverticulum Complicated by Recurrent Gastrointestinal Bleeding and Small Bowel Obstruction.

Cureus 2022 Jan 18;14(1):e21391. Epub 2022 Jan 18.

Gastroenterology, Hepatology & Nutrition, Cleveland Clinic Main Campus, Cleveland, USA.

Intraluminal duodenal diverticulum (IDD) is a rare congenital anomaly resulting from the failure of the duodenum to recanalize during embryogenesis leaving a duodenal diaphragm or web within the lumen of the duodenum. In theory, the peristaltic force gradually stretches the tissue over time forming a diverticulum within the duodenal lumen. Identification of IDD by endoscopy or diagnostic imaging can be difficult, these lesions can be mistaken for other lesions or the collapsed diverticulum can be overlooked. Read More

Congenital anomalies of the tubular gastrointestinal tract.

Pathologica 2022 Feb;114(1):40-54

Department of Emergencies and Organ Transplantation, Pediatric Surgery, University of Bari, Bari, Italy.

Congenital anomalies of the tubular gastrointestinal tract are an important cause of morbidity not only in infants, but also in children and adults.

The gastrointestinal (GI) tract, composed of all three primitive germ layers, develops early during embryogenesis. Two major steps in its development are the formation of the gut tube (giving rise to the foregut, the midgut and the hindgut), and the formation of individual organs with specialized cell types.

Endoscopic management of gastrointestinal motility disorders.

Rozhl Chir 2022 ;101(1):4-13

Gastrointestinal motility disorders include several heterogeneous units affecting the esophagus, stomach, small or large intestine and the rectum. These are namely Zenkers diverticulum, esophageal achalasia, gastroesophageal reflux disease, gastroparesis, constipation, Ogilvies syndrome and post-fundoplication dysphagia. Given the progressive development of endoscopic techniques, patients with most of the above mentioned diseases can be offered a solution consisting of a mini-invasive endoscopic procedure which has already become a first-choice treatment for some of the disorders.

Small bowel diverticulosis: imaging appearances, complications, and pitfalls.

Clin Radiol 2022 04 7;77(4):264-273. Epub 2022 Jan 7.

Department of Clinical Radiology, East Lancashire Hospitals Trust, Haslingden Rd, Blackburn, BB2 3HH, UK. Electronic address:

Diverticula of the small bowel can be categorised as true, with Meckel's being the only example, or false. False small bowel diverticula (SBD) are acquired through herniation of the internal layers of the bowel wall through the muscularis propria. Peri-ampullary duodenal diverticula are a well-recognised example; however, the importance of more distal SBD in the jejunum and ileum is underappreciated, and they are under-reported on cross-sectional imaging.

University Clinic of Gastroenterohepatology, Medical Faculty, Ss. Cyril and Methodius University, Boulevard Mother Teresa 17, Skopje 1000, North Macedonia.

Meckel's diverticulum is a true diverticulum consisting of all three layers of the small intestine resulting from incomplete regression of the vitelline duct. While it is often benign, it can present with serious complications such as intussusception, ulceration, torsion, hemorrhage, obstruction, inflammation, and fistula formation. Although it typically presents in infancy and early childhood, it can also manifest much later into adulthood. Read More
