Meckel's diverticulum is a common anomaly of the GI tract that is known to cause small intestinal obstruction. A 17-yr-old male who had no history of previous surgery was admitted with intermittent abdominal pain. A barium enema showed extraintestinal compression of the ascending colon, suggesting the existence of a congenital band. Laparoscopy revealed that the ascending colon was lifted up and compressed by the intestinal end of a Meckel's diverticulum with a fibrous band connecting to the umbilicus. The portion of the ileum including the Meckel's diverticulum was resected. This is the first case of stenosis of the colon caused by a Meckel's diverticulum.
