Meckel's diverticulum is the most common congenital anomaly of the small intestine. It is a remnant of the omphalomesenteric duct.
Case presentation:
We report a case of a 22 years old patient admitted for intestinal obstruction whose surgical exploration revealed an intestinal obstruction of the small bowel by strangulation on a necrotic Meckel's diverticulum. Our patient underwent segmental resection with anastomosis.
The Meckel's diverticulum is clinically latent except in the case of complications, which would justify its search and resection during an abdominal approach for other pathology.

Key words: Meckel's diverticulum, intestinal obstruction, strangulation, segmental resection.
