Abstract: Meckel’s diverticulum is one of the commonest congenital anomaly of the small intestine. The surgical complications of Meckel’s diverticulum include hemorrhage, intestinal obstruction and diverticulitis. Intestinal obstruction due to Meckel’s diverticulum merits special mention due to the variability in the pathology leading to the obstruction. A case of Mesodiverticular band of Meckel’s diverticulum causing acute small bowel obstruction is presented with a view to highlight the peculiar pattern of the surgical pathology.
