Core Tip Meckel’s diverticulum (MD) is a rare innate anomaly of the gastrointestinal tract caused by incom-plete obliteration of the omphalomesenteric duct. It sometimes causes small bowel obstruction. However, as it symptoms are so non-specific, it may be difficult to make a correct diagnosis without exploratory laparotomy. This is a successful case of small-bowel obstruction caused by MD that was diagnosed preoperatively using multi-dimensional contrast-enhanced computed tomography and treated by elective laparoscopic surgery.
