Abstract
Introduction: Meckel's diverticulum is the most common congenital anomaly of gastrointestinal tract. Complications of Meckel's diverticulum include gastrointestinal bleeding, bowel obstruction and acute diverticulitis.
Case Report: A 34-year-old male patient was admitted to surgical department with intestinal obstruction 4th times during the last three years. Previous episodes of intestinal obstruction were treated conservatively with success. After last admission conservative treatment attempts were unsuccessful, so the patient underwent surgery. On laparotomy Meckel's diverticulum 40 cm proximal to ileocecal valve was found. The reason of intestinal obstruction appeared to be the mesentery of Meckel's diverticulum (mesodiverticulum) compressing adjacent small bowel and leading to intestinal obstruction.
Conclusion: Young patients with recurrent small bowel obstruction should be examined for Meckel's diverticulum and if found the patient should be treated surgically.

Keywords: Diverticulectomy, Meckel's diverticulum, Mesodiverticulum, Small bowel obstruction, True diverticulum
