Meckel’s diverticulum mimicking acute appendicitis is a very rare condition encountered in practice. MD is asymptomatic in most of cases and only about 4 to16% of cases develop complications. Perforation of MD by a foreign body is even rarer being only reported in few cases in the literature. The surgical management might be wedge resection or segmental resection and primary anastomoses depending on the intra operative findings. We report a case with foreign body impaction in MD with perforation mimicking acute appendicitis.
