1/70. Gallstone ileus with impaction at the neck of a Meckel's diverticulum.

    We report a case of gallstone ileus in which the stone impacted at the neck of a Meckel's diverticulum. CT demonstrated the gallstone as a calcified mass in the lower abdomen. Gallstone ileus was diagnosed although a more accurate diagnosis was not obtained pre-operatively. The site of impaction was not typical and a blind loop filled with contrast materials was evident. We believe that this is the first report demonstrating this rare condition with imaging.

2/70. Strangulation of small bowel due to meckel diverticulum: CT findings.

    We report an unusual case of small bowel strangulation due to long meckel diverticulum. CT demonstration of the bundle-like segment contiguous with the distended fluid-filled loops of bowel contributed to the prompt preoperative diagnosis.

3/70. Meckel's diverticulitis in an elderly man diagnosed by computed tomography.

    Meckel's diverticulum is the most common congenital abnormality of the gastrointestinal tract. Complications most frequently arise in children younger than 2 years who present with gastrointestinal bleeding. The diagnosis is usually made via radionuclide scintigraphy or intraoperatively. The authors report a 71-year-old man who developed a sudden onset of right lower quadrant abdominal pain, without bleeding, and was diagnosed as having Meckel's diverticulitis via computed tomography. The presence of Meckel' s diverticulitis was confirmed at surgery. Complications of a Meckel's diverticulum must be considered at any age. Computed tomography is another modality that may be helpful in the preoperative diagnosis.

4/70. A Meckel's diverticulum containing pancreatic tissue and nesidioblastosis in a patient with beckwith-wiedemann syndrome.

    A 30-month-old twin with beckwith-wiedemann syndrome underwent exstirpation of a nephroblastoma from the right kidney. A Meckel's diverticulum (MD), an incidental finding intraoperatively, was resected because it was indurated and enlarged. Histologically, the MD contained ectopic gastric and pancreatic mucosa. nesidioblastosis was identified within the pancreatic tissue. This is probably the first description of ectopic nesidioblastosis within a MD.

5/70. Meckel's bleeding diverticulum diagnosed by mesenteric arteriography.

    The details of a young adult patient who presented with chronic gastro-intestinal blood loss as a complication of Meckel's diverticulum are reported. A preoperative diagnosis was made using superior mesenteric arteriography. The merits of superior mesenteric arteriography and other investigations currently available in the diagnosis of Meckel's diverticulum are discussed.

6/70. Meckel's diverticulum causing cecal volvulus.

    Meckel's diverticulum is present in 2 per cent of the population with bowel obstruction as its most common complication. This case report describes an extremely rare complication of a Meckel's diverticulum, a cecal volvulus. The diagnosis of cecal volvulus was made preoperatively on abdominal x-rays; the diagnosis of a Meckel's diverticulum was made intraoperatively. The cecum was found to be twisted around a vitelline band on a broad-based Meckel's diverticulum extending to the umbilicus. The diverticulum was resected. The patient did well postoperatively and was discharged without any difficulty.

7/70. Internal hernia caused by meckel diverticulum in an infant: report of one case.

    intestinal obstruction caused by internal hernia due to meckel diverticulum is a rare disease. The condition is seldom diagnosed preoperatively. In this paper, we present a 10-month-old boy who suffered from abdominal pain, persistent vomiting, and mild fever for 2 days. Abdominal sonography, plain abdomen X-ray, and computed tomography merely showed mechanical ileus and partial malrotation. However, exploratory laparotomy revealed a meckel diverticulum through which the small bowel had herniated. We introduce the meckel diverticulum and internal hernia and discuss intestinal obstructions.

8/70. Stromal tumour within a Meckel's diverticulum: CT and ultrasound findings.

    The incidence of tumours within a Meckel's diverticulum is 0.5-3.2%. Their pre-operative diagnosis is rare. We report a case of an incidentally found gastrointestinal stromal tumour within a Meckel's diverticulum in a patient presenting with acute appendicitis. The tumour was demonstrated pre-operatively by ultrasound and CT.

9/70. Giant Meckel's diverticulum containing enteroliths: typical CT imaging findings.

    We report a case of a giant Meckel's diverticulum containing numerous enteroliths. A correct diagnosis was made preoperatively by means of CT, by demonstrating a connection between the diverticulum, containing multiple peripherally calcified stones, and the small intestine.

10/70. Meckel's diverticulum perforation with intraabdominal hemorrhage.

    Perforation of Meckel's diverticulum in children is a rare and serious complication. The authors report a case of a 3-year-old boy with perforation and hemoperitoneum caused by Meckel's diverticulum. Difficulty of preoperative diagnosis is discussed, indication for incidental diverticulotomy is established, and the literature is reviewed.
