Core Tip Gallstone ileus is an uncommon cause of small bowel obstruction in the population at large but is responsible for up to a quarter of mechanical bowel obstructions in the elderly in the United States. We report a rare case of gallstone ileus with impaction at the jejunum and at a Meckel’s diverticulum in a 64-year-old female managed by laparoscopic converted to open segmental bowel resections. We review current literature comparing surgical procedures for Meckel’s diverticulum and gallstone ileus.
