Giant Meckel’s Diverticulum with “Daughter”/“Granddaughter” Diverticula: An “On‑Table” Surprise at an Acute Abdomen

Author(s): Jategaonkar PA, Jategaonkar SP, Yadav SP

Meckel’s diverticulum (MD) is one of the common entities tackled by a general surgeon. Although it has an array of clinical presentations, we came across an unusual intraoperative finding that surprised us on the operating table during an emergency abdominal exploration. The purpose of this paper is to make the surgical fraternity aware of such an atypical, however, clinically relevant finding and to highlight the significance of early surgical intervention in these cases. To the best of our knowledge, such a case is yet to be reported.
