Abstract

Meckel's diverticulum is a remnant of the omphalomesenteric duct. The most common symptomatic presentations of this anomaly are due to bleeding or perforation from peptic ulceration, intestinal obstruction resulting from intussusception or volvulus, inflammation, faecal fistula, adenoma, and (rarely) neoplasms. We present a rare case of leiomyosarcoma of the Meckel's diverticulum presenting with abdominal pain and fever, complicated by bleeding following a CT guided biopsy. The diagnosis is often difficult and rarely made pre-operatively. The management involves a wide segmental resection of bowel and mesentery with primary anastomosis. Wide lymph node dissection is not indicated, and neither chemotherapy nor radiotherapy have been found to be of significant benefit.
