GUTIERREZ CCENCHO, C et al. Persistente of onphalomesenteric duct as intestinal obstruction cause in a adult: Report of a case in the Hipolito Unanue Nacional Hospital. Rev. gastroenterol. Perú [online]. 2008, vol.28, n.2, pp. 154-157. ISSN 1022-5129.
The persistence of the onphalomesenteric duct has been reported in several pediatric publications either through the appearance of Meckel diverticulum that are commonest, or by the appearance of segments with partial or total permeability of itself. Sporadic cases have appeared where this anomaly has originated episodes of intestinal obstruction in infants and children specially under the form of a fibrous band. However, adult presentation is extremely infrecuent. The case presented in this report shows compatible findings with a onphalomesenteric conduit with partial permeability, that I originate an intestinal picture of obstruction in a young adult.
