The incidence of Littre俟Q製 hernia in children is unknown. The diagnosis is usually made at operation or autopsy. One case in an eight month old infant is described. Heterotropic mucoglandular tissue causing nodularity and adhesions was noted in the diverticulum. Though histological findings in Littre俟Q製 hernia are not mentioned in previous reports, we believe that Littre俟Q製 hernia could often be associated heterotropic mucosa.
