Introduction. Intestinal obstruction in the setting of Meckel's diverticulum in young age and with orange and meat bezoar is a rare, previously unreported condition. Since the obstruction point is located immediately after Meckel's diverticulum in our patients, we attempt to introduce "localized peristalsis insufficiency" as a new etiology for small intestine obstruction while reviewing the findings of previous studies. Conclusion. Intestinal obstruction in the setting of Meckel's diverticulum and with orange and meat bezoar is a rare, previously unreported condition. Considering the previous reports, we may present the theory of localized peristalsis insufficiency in patients with Meckel's diverticulum.
