Abstract

Meckel's diverticulum is a remnant of the omphalomesenteric duct. It is an evagination of the lining of the small intestine that is present in some children at birth. Meckel's diverticulum is a rare condition in adults. It is often discovered incidentally to laparotomy performed for an acute surgical abdomen. We report the case of a 20-year-old man, hospitalized and treated at the general surgery department of the Sino-Central African Friendship University Hospital in Bangui from September 22 to 30, 2023. He had frank peritoneal syndrome and laparotomy we discovered a small bowel volvulus on Meckel's diverticulum located about 30 cm from the ileocecal junction. The strangulation was lifted, the diverticulum resected at its base, and the intestine sutured. A principled appendectomy was performed. The post-operative period was simple.
