Description:

Abstract: Meckel’s diverticulum is an outpouching in the wall of the intestine. Although it is the most common congenital abnormality of the gastrointestinal tract, diagnosing and deciding on intervention is often a matter of debate when it presents asymptomatically. A 60-year-old man with an umbilical hernia presented to our institution for elective surgery. A Meckel’s diverticulum was incidentally discovered perioperatively and removed. Although the mortality and risk of complications are low, the surgical team in this case decided to remove the diverticulum to prevent any possible complications from occurring in the future due to its presence.
