We describe an uncommon case of severe anemia in an adult man. The patient was evaluated with esophagogastroduodenoscopy, colonoscopy, barium enema and abdominal US, which all proved normal. Abdominal CT showed a nonspecific intraluminal mass. Smallbowel follow-through revealed a polypoid mass with a club-like appearance typical for an invaginated Meckel's diverticulum. Our diagnosis was confirmed by surgery.
