Littre hernia is defined as the presence of a Meckel diverticulum in any hernial sac. We report a 19 years old male that consulted in an emergency hospital due to a painful lump in the right inguinal region after a blunt trauma. He was operated and a loop of terminal ileon with a Meckel diverticulum of approximately 12 cm. was found in the hernial sac. The segment that contained the diverticulum was excised and the hernial sac was repaired. The patient was discharged three days later in good conditions

Palabras clave : Littre hernia; Meckel diverticulum; inguinal hernia.
