Femoral hernia with strangulated Meckel's diverticulum (Littre's hernia).
An unusual complication of a Meckel's diverticulum, a strangulated Littre's femoral hernia, is presented. The incidence and complications of Meckel's diverticulum are discussed. It is emphasized that most complications occur before age 30. Thus in an adult an incidentally discovered Meckel's diverticulum should not be resected.
