ABSTRACT: This report describes an unusual presentation of Meckel's diverticulum in a 2-day old male neonate. The clinical presentation was small bowel obstruction. Plain abdominal X-ray was suggestive of segmental small bowel dilatation. Laparotomy revealed a greatly distended Meckel's diverticulum; the intestine immediately distal to the diverticulum was kinked and trapped in its own anomalous artery. Resection of the distended diverticulum and restoration of bowel continuity was curative. This is a unique presentation of massive dilatation of Meckel's diverticulum in a neonate.
