Falavigna, Asdrubal;Borba, Luis A. B.;Ferraz, Fernando Antonio Patriani;Almeida, Giovana Camargo de;Krindges Júnior, José Valentim;
Arquivos de Neuro-Psiquiatria , 2004, DOI: 10.1590/S0004-282X2004000200030
Abstract: we present a case of trigeminal neuralgia with cranial normal magnetic resonance image (mri) and computed tomography. the pain was not relieved by carbamazepine and microvascular decompression surgery was done. after two months the pain was similar to the condition before surgery. at this time, mri showed an expansive lesion in meckel's cave that was treated with radical resection by extra-dural approach. the pathologic examination revealed a primary melanoma. the follow-up after six months did not show abnormalities.

Abstract: We present a case of trigeminal neuralgia with cranial normal magnetic resonance image (MRI) and computed tomography. The pain was not relieved by carbamazepine and microvascular decompression surgery was done. After two months the pain was similar to the condition before surgery. At this time, MRI showed an expansive lesion in Meckel's cave that was treated with radical resection by extra-dural approach. The pathologic examination revealed a primary melanoma.

Unusual Cause of Trigeminal Neuralgia: Arachnoid Cyst of Petrous Apex  [PDF]

Arachnoid cyst of petrous apex is an uncommon cyst lesion that herniates from the posterolateral portion of the Meckel’s cave into the petrous apex. It can be unilateral or bilateral, usually observed in female population. Its etiopathogenesis is still uncertain and many theories were reported in the literature. The characteristic imaging appearance, topography and benign behavior of the lesion allow to differentiate arachnoid cyst from other cyst-like lesions of petrous apex and prevent abusive surgery or unnecessary investigations. The purpose of this study is to illustrate through this observation the role of sectional imaging in the diagnosis of symptomatic arachnoid cyst of petrous apex.
Bleeding Meckel’s in Pregnancy: A Rare Cause of a Rare Phenomenon  [PDF]

Abstract: Meckel’s diverticulum complicating pregnancy is indeed a rare occurrence. The anatomical and physiological changes that occur in pregnancy make the clinical presentation and preoperative diagnosis of an acute abdomen extremely difficult. Even imaging modalities have to be used with caution keeping in mind the risks associated for both mother and fetus. Treatment of such cases must be prompt and accurate with a high index of suspicion in order to prevent high rate of maternal and fetal morbidity. We report one such case of bleeding of Meckel’s diverticulum. The most common cause of bleeding in a Meckel’s is ectopic gastric mucosa. When we performed an exploratory laparotomy we found to our surprise a bleeding Meckel’s diverticulum. Further investigations revealed a very interesting histopathological report of endometriosis as the cause of bleed.
Acute Appendicitis with Meckel’s Diverticulum Combined: 1 Case Report

Appendicitis is one of the most common acute abdominal diseases of general surgery. It is not dif-ficult to make the right diagnosis by its typical symptoms and physical signs. However, it is difficult to tell them from each other if patients combine with Meckel’s diverticulitis before operation. Once we make a diagnosis with appendicitis and ignore the conventional probe of the ileum, which may cause a second surgery because it merges Meckel’s diverticulitis or Meckel’s diverticulitis is recurred based on asymptomatic Meckel’s diverticulum after operation. Recently, we have found a case which the patient has suffered from acute appendicitis disease with Meckel’s diverticulum combined in clinical, now the report as follows.
Postoperative intestinal obstruction caused by Meckel’s diverticulitis after appendectomy  [PDF]

Surgical treatment of the complications associated with Meckel’s diverticulum is widely accepted, but surgical management of an asymptomatic diverticulum found incidentally during laparotomy for other reasons is controversial. Appendectomy is the most common reason for laparotomy in many pediatric surgery clinics. The most common causes of an intestinal obstruction in the early period after appendectomy are an intra-abdominal abscess, adhesive small bowel obstruction and invagination. Obstruction due to Meckel’s diverticulum is reported rarely. In this study, we present 2 cases, five and eleven years old, with an asymptomatic Meckel’s diverticulum where appendectomy was performed due to acute and perforated appendicitis and obstruction developed due to Meckel’s diverticulitis in the postoperative early stage. Meckel’s diverticulitis must be considered in intestinal obstruction cases developing in the early stages after appendectomy although quite rare.

Abstract: Meckel’s diverticulum is not commonly encountered surgical entity and presents unique challenges for a pediatric surgeon, as it is prone to varied complications. A 14-year-old boy was admitted with us with a 48-hour history of lower abdominal pain and multiple episodes of vomiting. Radiological imaging studies revealed a high-grade partial small bowel obstruction. A fleeting conservative management was tried. The diagnostic laparoscopy revealed a small bowel obstruction secondary to a Meckel’s diverticulum. The diverticulum was resected using an endovascular GIA stapler. The patient was discharged on postoperative day four, tolerating a regular diet. Laparoscopy is a useful diagnostic and therapeutic means for a patient with a small bowel obstruction due to an uncertain etiology.

Abstract: littré's hernia is an extremely rare surgical event. it is characterized by the presence of meckel's diverticulum in the hernial sack. the authors report one case of littré's hernia in a 42 year-old male who had the diagnosis accomplished in the intraoperative. the diverticulum presented no signs of complications and was treated conservatively , without exeresis.
Meckels diverticulum in children: A 12 years experience in Amir-Kabir children's hospital
Pediatric,Acute abdomen,Meckel's diverticulum
Tehran University Medical Journal , 1999,
Abstract: Meckels Diverticulum is the most common congenital anomaly of GI tract. Complications develop in about 4% of cases as an acute abdomen. During the last 12 years, 58 patients with Meckel's diverticulum were treated in Amir-Kabir children's hospital. The majority of our cases (84%, 49 from 58) were under 6 years of age, with boys outnumbering girls (4:1). Intestinal obstruction was the most common form of presentation, included 60% of symptomatic patients and lower GI bleeding was the second one and included 25% of symptomatic cases. 31% (18 cases) were found in laparotomy for other reasons (Asymptomatic). There were heterotopic gastric mucosa in all of 10 patients with lower GI bleeding out in 4 of 18 incidentally discovered cases. In conclusion the Meckel's diverticulum must be one of the primary concern, in the differential diagnosis of the pediatric patients with painless, moderate to massive rectal bleeding with or without clots, intestinal obstruction or abdominal pain of uncertain cause. Heterotopic tissue in Meckel's diverticulum has important role in occurrence of complications.
Meckel`s Diverticulitis Due to Actinomycosis

Journal of Medical Sciences , 2007,
Abstract: The patient was 36 years old female admitted due to periumbilical pain and anorexia since about 24 h prior to hospitalization. She underwent laparotomy with impression of acute appendicitis. Operative finding was Meckel`s diverticulitis, so appendectomy and resection of diverticular bearing Ileum with end to end anastomosis was performed. Post operation course was uneventful and she discharged 5 days later. Pathological study confirmed the diagnosis of Meckel`s diverticulitis due to actinomycosis as the cause of diverticular obstruction. The relatively rare incidence and preoperative diagnosis difficulties make publication of this case worthwhile.
