Ascaris lumbricoides is a large parasite that infests the human bowel, especially in regions with poor environmental sanitation in the tropics. Meckel's diverticulum is mainly an asymptomatic congenital intestinal anomaly. Rarely, it becomes symptomatic when it is associated with complications such as diverticulitis, perforation, and bleeding. It may be associated with a heavy worm load. We report a case of 7-year-old female child with intestinal obstruction and incidental finding of Meckel's diverticulum with gangrenous bowel.
