Abstract

Neoplastic change in the small bowel is rare. However, there is greater chance of this occurring in Meckel's diverticulum, where leiomyomata predominate. This report descriptionbes an unusual presentation of a leiomyoma of Meckel's diverticulum causing small bowel obstruction. Recommendations are made that Meckel's diverticulum, where found, should be excised.
