Meckel's diverticulum is the most common malformation of gastrointestinal tract. Symptoms of Meckel's diverticulum usually arise within 2 years of life. The most common presentations include hemorrhage, perforation, diverticulitis and intestinal obstruction. Perforation of the Meckel's diverticulum in a neonate is uncommon but life threatening condition. We describe the first case of perforation of Meckel's diverticulum in a 1-day-old neonate who presented with abdominal distension without hemorrhage.
