Table 1 Estimated rates of accurate diagnosis

From: Spontaneous perforation of Meckel’s diverticulum in an adult female with literature review

Citation Patients reported Number misdiagnosed Estimated accurate diagnosis rate (%)
Yamaguchi et al. (1978) [17] 600 (287)* 566 5.7
Kusumoto et al. (1992) [24] 274 29 10.6
Bani-Hani et al. (2004) [20] 68 64 5.9
Sai et al. (2007) [25] 36 20** 44
Ding et al. (2012) [9] 15 13 13
Chen et al. (2018) [15] 233 134** 42.49
  1. *Only 287 of the 600 patients had a preoperative diagnosis before surgery
  2. **The remainder of children presented with GI bleed; thus, a misdiagnosis of MD with symptoms other than GI bleed approached 100%
