Abstract

Meckel's diverticulum is the most common congenital anomaly of the gastro-intestinal tract.

It is generally asymptomatic. Occasionally, it may cause some complications such as bleeding, obstruction, diverticulitis and intussusception. We present a case of a 21-year-old female with intussusception due to inverted Meckel's diverticulum. Diagnosis and therapy of inverted Meckel's diverticulum is a subject of debate because of its rarity and the limited number of reports in the literature.
