Inverted Meckel's diverticulum causing intussusception in a Crohn's patient.

Sharp G, Kozman D - J Surg Case Rep (2015)

Bottom Line: MD is the most common congenital malformation of the human gastrointestinal tract.Its paediatric preponderance may result in its oversight in the adult population as a cause for symptoms.Intestinal obstruction is the most common adult presentation in non-inverted MD, whereas haemorrhage and anaemia are the most frequent presenting complaint with an 'inverted' MD.

RJV112F2: The inverted MD after being everted.

Mentions: His abdomen was initially explored laparoscopically and then converted to laparotomy due to extensive adhesions. The old ileocolic anastomosis was mobilized and a large polypoid mass was palpable in the small bowel ∼30 cm from the ileocolic anastomosis (Figs 1 and 2). A redo ileocolic side-to-side stapled anastomosis was fashioned. His post-operative recovery was hampered by an ileus, which resolved allowing discharge 7 days after his initial presentation.Figure 1:
