Nine cases of Meckel diverticulum seen over a period of four years are presented. Six presented with gangrene, perforation, intestinal obstruction, intraabdominal abscess and pain related to Meckel diverticulum. The remaining three were incidental findings. Seven of the patients were males and two females. Average age of the patients was 25.5 years. The paper reaffirms the well-known practice that Meckel diverticulum should be looked for at laparotomies and resected when seen.
