Chilaiditi's syndrome, comprising internal herniation of intestine into sub-diaphragmatic space, may cause acute intestinal obstruction necessitating emergency laparotomy. It is associated with several co-morbidities. In our case its association with subclinical hypothyroidism was detected on the fourth post-operative day, which affected anesthetic management by markedly delaying recovery from general anesthesia.

    Enteroliths are a rare complication of Meckel's diverticula, with perforation of the diverticulum being an even rarer occurrence. Bowel obstruction secondary to a Meckel's enterolith, albeit uncommon, occurs due to inflammation, intussusception, or impaction after extrusion from the...
