The authors describe a case of intestinal obstruction due to a mesodiverticular band, in which both vitelline artery and vein remnanants were affirmed to be present histologically. Reviewing case reports in literature, it was revealed that the vein found in the band was the right vitelline vein remnant and that this was an important fact which proved the hypothesis that the superior mesenteric vein derives from the right vitelline vein.
