Meckel's diverticulum is a remnant of the vitelline duct located in the distal ileum, and it is the most common cause of small bowel bleeding in patients who are under the age of 25 years. The ectopic gastric mucosa in Meckel's diverticulum causes ulceration and acute gastrointestinal bleeding. Capsule endoscopy is now a valuable tool for diagnosing obscure gastrointestinal bleeding. However, the identification of a Meckel's diverticulum by wireless capsule endoscopy has rarely been reported on. An 18-year-old man was admitted for recurrent melena and anemia. He underwent a small bowel series that showed a jejunal diverticulum, and capsule endoscopy then revealed a jejunal diverticulum with multiple ulcerations. After 2 months, he had fresh hematochezia and so he underwent small bowel segemental resection that included the jejunal diverticulum. The operation revealed Meckels' diverticulum at 180 cm distant from the ileocecal valve at the mesenteric side. We report here on a case of bleeding Meckel's diverticulum that was diagnosed by wireless capsule endoscopy, and we include a review of the relevant literature.
