in a completely asymptomatic individual over the age of 2 in which there is an incidental finding of meckel's diverticulum what type of mucosa is most likely to be found? normal small intestinal or heterotopic?


In completely asymptomatic I think there will b normal intestinal mucosa

correct me if I m wrong


actually i don't know, i found two sources with different stats. a surgical textbook says heterotopic tissue is found in only 5% of Asx pts, where as in another source it says in more than 50% of cases heterotopic tissue is found
