Intestinal obstruction due to internal herniation is rare. There is only 0.5–5.8% of incidence described in the available literature. In infancy, it is rarer. Internal herniation of Meckel's diverticulum through meso-appendix in an infant is an extremely rare emergency situation, and probably the first case to be reported in the literature.
