Abstract

Meckel's diverticulum and duplication of the alimentary tract are very important as the congenital anomalies of ileum. As these two diseases have the common clinical characteristics such as sex, age, symptoms and complications, it is often difficult to diagnose before surgery. This report describes and compared the clinical aspects of Meckel's diverticulum and duplication of the alimentary tract, which were experienced at Nagoya University Hospital and Kariya Toyota General Hospital.
