The small bowel is the most common site of an unknown origin of gastrointestinal bleeding. Meckel's diverticulum is the most common congenital anomaly of the gastrointestinal tract in children. The complications from Meckel's diverticulum such as bleeding decrease with age, and so Meckel's diverticular bleeding is very rare in old age patients. The diagnosis of Meckel's diverticulum may be very difficult and especially in old age patients. Capsule endoscopy and double balloon enteroscopy have recently become useful diagnostic tools for assessing diverticular bleeding and small bowel lesions as these techniques can examine the entire small intestine. We report here on a case of Meckel's diverticulum that was detected by capsule endoscopy and double balloon enteroscopy and this was confirmed by surgery in a 76-year-old man with recurrent hematochezia.
