MOYA MENESES, Manuel; CASTANO DIAZ, Marta; SAEZ MORENO, Miguel Ángel  and  LOPEZ-TORRES HIDALGO, Jesús. Meckel's diverticulum as a cause of recurring abdominal pain. Rev Clin Med Fam [online]. 2019, vol.12, n.3, pp.151-154.  Epub Oct 21, 2019. ISSN 2386-8201.

Meckel's diverticulum is the most frequent gastrointestinal congenital anomaly. Although its most common clinical presentation is gastrointestinal bleeding, it also manifests with bowel obstruction or acute inflammatory process. Correct diagnosis and treatment require a high degree of clinical suspicion.

We present the case of a 19-year-old man with recurring abdominal pain, who eventually had a Meckel's diverticulum removed.

Keywords : Meckel Diverticulum; Abdominal Pain; Primary Health Care.
