Abstract

Two unusual cases of small bowel obstruction associated with an omphalomesenteric duct remnant are described in 2 girls aged 14 years. The causative factor was a stenotic area in the terminal ileum caused by a ringlike lipovascular mesenteric band encroaching externally on the lumen. A phytobezoar was lodged proximally. This is as yet an undescribed variant of a mesodiverticular band. Copyright (C) 2000 W.B. Saunders Company.
