Large Meckel’s Diverticulum Enterolith. A case of small bowel obstruction

The Meckel’s diverticulum is usually asymptomatic but in sometimes it presents severe complications, such as bleeding or perforation. The presence of enterolith inside a Meckel diverticulum is rare. In this report, we present a case of a 56- years- old man, with an abdominal pain and small bowel obstruction for a enterolith. Preoperative radiologic studies in Emergency Room (ER) didn’t reveal this stone, but realeved a small bowel obstruction. Initially, we tried a conservative management, however after about 48 hours, due to worsening symptoms, the patient undergoes an exploratory laparotomy and a intestinal resection.
