Meckel’s diverticulum is a common anomaly of the gastrointestinal tract. The most common complications of Meckel’s diverticulum are inflammation, bleeding and obstruction. We present a 12-year-old boy with bowel obstruction due to phytobezoar in a Meckel’s diverticulum. We describe diagnostic difficulties and our surgery approach comparing it to the literature.
