This is a review of a child who developed symptomatic anemia secondary to a huge Meckel's Diverticulum (MD). The patient presented with multiple complications, such as: neoplasia, occult chronic bleeding, giant size MD, partial intestinal obstruction and severe symptomatic anemia. There was complete resolution of the condition after resection and ileo-ileal anastomosis. After revision of the literature, this case is the first report of MD occurring concomitantly with such a myriad of signs and symptoms.
