Perforated Meckel's Diverticulum Masquerading as a Mesenteric Abscess Related to Umbilical Piercing: An Unusual Cause of Acute Abdomen.

Cureus 2019 Feb 5;11(2):e4020. Epub 2019 Feb 5.

Radiology, University Hospital Galway, Galway, IRL.

Perforated Meckel's diverticulum (MD) is a rare cause of acute abdomen in adults. We describe the case of a 32-year-old man presenting with worsening abdominal pain three weeks following the piercing of his umbilicus. Computed tomography of the abdomen and pelvis demonstrated a small mesenteric collection intimately related to the recently placed navel ornamentation, and a preliminary diagnosis of intra-abdominal abscess secondary to an infected umbilical piercing was made.

Computed tomography of complicated Meckel's diverticulum in adults.

Radiologia 2019 Apr 8. Epub 2019 Apr 8.

Departamento de Radiología, Hospital Universitari Vall d'Hebron, Barcelona, España.

Objective: To review the embryology, the clinical findings and the appearance in multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) of complicated Meckel's diverticulum (DM) in adults.

Conclusion: The presence of an MD in a MDCT should be suspected when a blind tubular structure connected to the terminal ileum by a neck of variable size is observed. Multiplanar 2D reconstructions images and CT enterography can help in the diagnosis. Read More

Meckel's Diverticulum in Adults: Surgical Concerns.

Front Surg 2018 3;5:55. Epub 2018 Sep 3.

Department of General Surgery, General Hospital of Drama, Drama, Greece.

Since Meckel's diverticulum (MD) is rarely diagnosed in adults, there is no consensus on what type of procedure to be performed for symptomatic MD and whether to resect or not an accidentally discovered MD. Treatment of symptomatic MD is definitive surgery, including diverticulectomy, wedge, and segmental resection. The type of procedure depends on: (a) the integrity of diverticulum base and adjacent ileum; (b) the presence and location of ectopic tissue within MD. Read More

According to anecdotal reports in literature, encountering Meckel's diverticulum in a patient with Crohn's disease is not uncommon, but differentiating between the overlapping complications of Mickel's diverticulum and the natural manifestations of Crohn's disease can be challenging and may impact lifelong therapy. In this report, we present a case of Meckel's diverticulitis in a patient with stricturing ileocolonic Crohn's disease. A 29-year-old male has been suffering from recurrent bouts of abdominal pain and diarrhea which were initially thought to be due to recurrent flares of Crohn's disease. Read More

Heterotopic pancreas without Meckel's diverticulum in children as unique cause of gastrointestinal bleeding: think about it!

Surg Radiol Anat 2018 Aug 21;40(8):963-965. Epub 2018 May 21.

Service de Chirurgie Infantile, Hôpital de la Timone, 13005, Marseille Cedex 20, France.

Ectopic pancreas also known as heterotopic pancreas (HP) is a rare congenital anomaly, mainly found as incidental finding during autopsy or abdominal exploration for an other condition. Incidence rate is probably underestimated as patients are mostly asymptomatic; otherwise, it is capable of producing symptoms depending on its location, size, often appearing in the 4th-to-6th decades. Complications such as inflammation, obstruction, bleeding, and malignancy degeneration must be considered. Read More

Axial Torsion and Infarction of Meckel\'s Diverticulum in the 3rd Trimester of Pregnancy.

Chirurgia (Bucur) 2018 Mar-Apr;113(2):266-269

Meckel's diverticulum is a congenital anomaly which can become complicated or remain asymptomatic throughout life. During pregnancy, however, diverticulum infection could become a serious complication. Diverticulum necrosis and perforation are complications that increase morbidity in pregnancy, both maternal and fetal. Read More

N Z Med J 2018 May 4;131(1474):74-76. Epub 2018 May 4.

General Surgery Consultant, Department of General Surgery, Christchurch Public Hospital, Christchurch.

We report a case of a patient presenting with small bowel obstruction secondary to an enteric ileal duplication cyst. Although common in infancy, they are rarely seen in adults. Radiologically they may be difficult to distinguish from a Meckel diverticulum and often the diagnosis is made retrospectively. Read More

A newborn patient with both annular pancreas and Meckel's diverticulum: A case report of an unusual association.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Apr;97(17):e0583

Department of Pediatric Surgery, Children's Hospital of Soochow University, Suzhou, China.

Rationale: Annular pancreas (AP) is recognized as a cause of duodenal obstruction in children, while children with Meckel's diverticulum (MD) are usually asymptomatic. Here we present a rare case with both AP and MD, which was identified by abdominal exploration during diamond-shaped duodenoduodenostomy.

Patient Concerns: A "double-bubble" sign was found by ultrasound at 35 week of pregnancy. Read More

Outcomes of laparoscopic resection of Meckel's diverticulum are equivalent to open laparotomy.

J Pediatr Surg 2019 Mar 15;54(3):507-510. Epub 2018 Mar 15.

Department of Surgery, Duke University Medical Center, Durham, NC, USA. Electronic address:

Purpose: Meckel's diverticulum (MD) is a common congenital anomaly caused by failure of involution of the omphalomesenteric duct. Enthusiasm for minimally invasive surgery (MIS) in children has burgeoned as technologies have advanced, but the outcomes of laparoscopic resection in comparison to open laparotomy for MD remain poorly defined. We queried a large national database to compare current practice patterns and clinical outcomes between surgical approaches for MD in the pediatric population. Read More
