Meckel's diverticulum is a sac-like bulge of the wall of ileum formed in result of incomplete closure of the viteline duct that participates in nutrition of the embryo. Aim. To familiarize a wide community of colleagues with an interesting clinical case of a foreign body (a coin) in Meckel's diverticulum. In the article, approaches to diagnostics and operative treatment of such patients are given. This clinical observation is of interest to abdominal surgeons from the point of view that Meckel's diverticulum is most commonly identified by clinical symptoms present in diverticulitis, bleeding or perforating ulcer, in intestinal obstruction caused by formation of a node or of invagination. Conclusion. A situation in which a blunt-ended foreign body permitted to identify Meckel's diverticulum, is described as casuistically rare.
