Abstract

A case of Meckel's diverticulum causing intussusception in an 8-year- old boy is presented. The Meckel's diverticulum was detected by using a Tc- 99m-labeled antigranulocyte monoclonal antibody MN3 (Leukoscan®; Immunomedics, Morris Plains, NJ), which is under clinical evaluation for the detection of atypical appendicitis at the authors' institution. Pathologic evaluation confirmed Meckel's diverticulitis with ileal-ileal intussusception.
