The case of a 59-year-old man with a history of recurrent severe gastrointestinal bleeding due to Meckel’s diverticulum is described. The diagnosis was achieved by means of capsule endoscopy. The histological examination revealed the presence of Meckel’s diverticulum with ectopic gastric mucosa. The use of capsule endoscopy for the detection of Meckel’s diverticulum is discussed.
