Abstract
We report two cases of symptomatic Meckel's diverticulum in adults with recurrent abdominal pain and episodes of minor lower gastrointestinal bleeding. In case 1, the diagnosis was suggested by (99m)Tc pertechnetate scan and confirmed by laparoscopy; whereas in case 2, only diagnostic laparoscopy was performed because of suspected appendicitis. A segmental small bowel resection with attached diverticulum was performed extracorporeally after exteriorization through the umbilical port site in both cases.
