Meckel’s Stoma formation is an important aspect of many colorectal operations both in the emergency and elective setting. It allows for the diversion of gastro-intestinal contents and provides protection for distal anastomosis. Stomal and para-stomal complications may present acutely on the emergency surgical take or seen in the outpatient clinic.
We present a case of a 51-year old female admitted to the hospital with lower abdominal pain and found to have a discharging peristomal lesion on the background of previous extensive surgery for ovarian cancer.
