Meckel's diverticulum is one of the most common anomalies of the gastrointestinal tract. Many of them remain unexpressed and are discovered accidentally. Vitello-intestinal duct anomalies are rare and occur in 1–2% of the population. These anomalies may present in adult life like appendicitis; hence, proper investigations will reveal the correct diagnosis. Meckel's diverticulum requires surgical correction. Here, we present a rare case report of Meckel's diverticulum with Vitelline cyst in a 21-year-old male patient, which was successfully resected surgically.
