The diagnosis of a symptomatic Meckel's diverticulum in an adult is uncommon. Still more infrequent is the presentation of a bleeding Meckel's diverticulum after childhood. We present a case report of a 24-year-old male with gastrointestinal hemorrhage secondary to a Meckel's diverticulum containing ectopic gastric mucosa. With the exception of a Meckel's Tc 99m pertechnetate scan, all other diagnostic procedures including Tc 99m-labeled red cell scan and angiography were negative.
