Abstract

Peritoneal variations frequently occur in humans. We report a rare type of peritoneal band which looked like persistent vitelline duct at the first glance. This tubular peritoneal band extended from the mesenteric border of ileum to the anterior abdominal wall close to the umbilicus. The band looked like an extension from ileum but upon sectioning the band we saw a bit of adipose tissue and a few blood vessels in it. We discuss the clinical importance of this band
