Meckel diverticulum is the most common gastrointestinal (GI) anomaly, occurring in 2% of the population. This condition often presents symptomatically similar to acute appendicitis in children. The most common presentation is GI hemorrhage, followed closely by obstruction due to intussusception. Laparoscopy is the standard in both diagnosing and treating a complicated Meckel diverticulum.
