Meckel divertikülü genellikle asemptomatiktir, ancak çeşitli nedenlerden dolayı semptomatik hale gelebilir ve akut karın sendromunun etyolojisinde yer alabilir. Bezoarlar, gastrointestinal sistemdeki sindirilemeyen maddelerin kombinasyonu ile oluşur ve bağırsak tıkanıklığının nadir nedenleri arasında yer alırlar. Meckel divertikülünde bezoar oluşumu ve bından kaynaklanan bağırsak tıkanıklığı nadir görülen bir durumdur. Bu makalede, Meckel divertikülünde bezoar nedeniyle bağırsak tıkanıklığı gelişen iki olgu ve cerrahi tedavisi sunulmuştur. (NCI-2020-0051.R2)
