Abstract

A Rare Case Presentati on of Meckel’s Div erticulum with Situs Inversus Totalis

Situs inversus, a rare congenital condition, is a complete mirror image of the thoracic and abdominal viscera, in which the positions of major visceral organs are reversed. Here, we report a case of a 6 year old boy who presented with abdominal pain in both the iliac fossae, fever and vomiting. Imaging studies showed situs inversus totalis and a provisional diagnosis of acute appendicitis was made and a possibility of meckel’s diverticulitis was suspected. A final diagnosis of meckel’s diverticulitis was made during emergency laparotomy. This case report is being presented because of its rare occurrence.
