Small bowel obstruction is seen extending until the ileo-cecal valve. A blind structure originating from the terminal ileum is identified, with slight wall thickening. However, not much fat stranding is seen near this structure, which could be a Meckel diverticulum. Moderate pelvic ascite is seen.
Small bowel obstruction is a recognized complication of a Meckel diverticulum. The diagnosis was confirmed per-operatively.
