Meckel’s diverticulum is a rare small intestinal anomaly. It is located on the antimesenteric border of the small intestine. It is a remnant that occurs as a result of patent vitelline duct (i.e., omphalomesenteric duct). It is usually located at 45-60 cm proximal to the ileocecal valve. We report a patient with double Meckel’s diverticulum located at 80 cm and 100 cm proximal to the ileocecal valve. We did not find any case of these localizations in the literature reported.
