An Unusual Case of Meckel Diverticulitis Misdiagnosed as an Infected Urachal Cyst.

Medicina (Kaunas) 2021 May 13;57(5). Epub 2021 May 13.

Clinical Medical Department, Faculty of Medicine and Pharmacy, "Dunărea de Jos" University, 800216 Galați, Romania.

Meckel's diverticulum (MD), a remnant of the omphaloenteric duct, is among the most frequent intestinal malformations. Another embryonic vestige is the urachus, which obliterates, becoming the median umbilical ligament; the failure of this process can lead to a urachal cyst formation. We present a case of Meckel diverticulitis misdiagnosed as an infected urachal cyst. Read More
