Diverticular disease of the right colon.
Surg Gynecol Obstet 1975; 140(1):30-2SG

Abstract

Diverticular disease of the right colon is uncommon. Most frequently, rightsided diverticula occur in the cecum, and usually, they are solitary. Generally, the diverticular are true diverticular containing all coats of the intestine, and usually the younger age group is affected. Right-sided diverticulitis mimics appendicitis. The diverticulum and adjacent reaction may be mistaken for carcinoma. Surgical excision is indicated to prevent recurrent symptoms as well as confusion at later barium studies.
