Multiple Stones inside a Secondary Diverticulum at the Tip of Meckel’s Diverticulum: A Case Report
Asian Journal of Case Reports in Surgery,
It is very rare to see cases of perforation of Meckel’s diverticulum containing faecolith. In this case, we have a patient with a secondary diverticulum at the tip of a Meckel’s diverticulum containing several stones. We present a case of a 31-year-old man who was previously healthy and complained of lower abdominal pain associated with vomiting and fever. Abdominal multi-detector CT with intravenous and oral contrast showed a well-defined collection close to the terminal ileum containing several stones and contrast. Diagnostic Laparoscopy was done which was converted to laparotomy and resection of a small part of the terminal ileum containing the Meckel’s diverticulum with its secondary diverticulum and anastomosis was done.
