Perforated Meckel's Diverticulitis.
A Meckel's diverticulum is a vestigial remnant present in approximately 2% of the population. Fewer than 10% of patients with a Meckel's diverticulum develop clinical complications, and such findings are exceedingly rare in the geriatric population. We present a case of perforated Meckel's diverticulitis with a fistulous tract involving the anterior abdominal wall in an 85-year-old male.
