Case for Thought: Meckel's Diverticulum in the Adult Population.

Cureus 2022 Apr 26;14(4):e24494. Epub 2022 Apr 26.

Internal Medicine, University of Central Florida College of Medicine, Graduate Medical Education/HCA Florida North Florida Hospital, Gainesville, USA.

Meckel's diverticulum (MD) is a well-known gastrointestinal (GI) congenital anomaly that is generally considered a disorder in neonates or a "clinically silent" disorder in adults. While prevalent in children, MD is not often considered as a differential in the etiology of GI bleeding in the adult population. We describe a case of MD presenting as a copious GI bleed in a 65-year-old male, which was found after numerous diagnostic studies. Read More

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

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.
