The incidences of male feticide and subsequent destruction of the aborted foetus although apparently are less compared to female feticide in India, the law of the land does not differentiate the two by gender and the perpetrators and facilitators for the crime including the woman are all liable for the offence. The reasons for male and female feticide may differ but the scientific and investigative approach in detection and dealing with the crime are the same and the forensic experts and medical practioners are required to play a proactive role in the interest of justice and to check this heinous crime against humanity. © 2014 JPAFMAT.

The incidence of the diverticulum of the small bowel varies from 0.2-1.3% in autopsy studies to 2.3% when assessed on enteroclysis. It occurs mostly in patients in the 6th decade of their life. Of all the small bowel diverticuli, jejunal diverticulum is the most common type. This rare entity is usually asymptomatic. However, they may cause chronic non-specific symptoms for a long period of time like dyspepsia, chronic postprandial pain, nausea, vomiting, borborgymi, alternating diarrhoea and constipation, weight loss, anaemia, steatorrhea or rarely lead to complications like haemorrhage, obstruction, perforation. Obstruction can be due to enterolith, adhesions, intussusception, and volvulus. The condition is difficult to diagnose because patients are generally presented with symptoms that mimic other diseases. It is important for clinicians to have awareness of this entity. Here, we present a case of multiple jejunal diverticuli with a history of repeated attacks of diverticulitis over past 20 years, which were misdiagnosed and now presented with intestinal obstruction due to volvulus of the involved segment along with mesentery around its axis. Resection of the diverticuli segment of jejunum was done with end-to-end jejuno-jejunal anastomosis. The patient is asymptomatic since 10 months of follow-up. © 2016 Shiraz University of Medical Sciences. All rights reserved.
