An embryological & surgical entity of the Meckel’s diverticulum has been studied in the incidental finding in a female patient admitted to hospital for the abdominal injury. Histological studies revealed absence of heterotrophic gastric and pancreatic tissue. However, the diverticulum did show thick longitudinal muscle and thinner circular muscle coat as compared to the adjacent normal Ileal tissue. In view of the existing literature, the presence of heterotrophic tissue could be as a result of genetic influence, a hypothesis needs further study.
