Figure 2 Contrast-enhanced computed tomography (coronal section image) showing a blind loop of the bowel extending near the uterus (arrowhead) and a fibrotic band connecting the mesentery to the top of the bowel (arrow) suggesting Meckel’s diverticulum and a mesodiverticular band. The terminal ileum appeared to be conglutinated to the band and a change in caliber was ascertained.
