Abstract: A diverticulum is a bulging sack in any portion of the gastrointestinal tract. The most common site for the formation of diverticula is the large intestine. Small intestine diverticular disease is much less common than colonic diverticular disease. The most common symptom is non-specific epigastric pain and a bloating sensation. Major complications include diverticulitis, gastrointestinal bleeding, acute perforation, pancreatic or biliary (in the case of duodenal diverticula) disease, intestinal obstruction, intestinal perforation, localized abscess, malabsorption, anemia, volvulus and bacterial overgrowth. We describe the clinical case of a 37-year-old male patient with a diagnosis of small bowel obstruction with intussuception. Intraoperative finding of solitary diverticulum arising from mesenteric boarder of distal ileum inverted in to lumen forming lead point for intussuception, underwent ileal resection with ileoileal anastomosis. postoperative period uneventful.
