[Acute perforated sigmoid diverticulitis in childhood].
Cir Pediatr. 1992 Jan; 5(1):48-50.CP

Abstract

Colonic diverticulosis is a pathology of high incidence in normal population during the last decades of life. About 2-5 per 100 of patients admitted because of this disease are below 40 years old, and in this group of patients diverticulitis tends to be very aggressive with a high number of complications. We report a clinical case of acute perforation of sigmoid colon due to diverticulitis in a ten year old child who was treated surgically by means of resection of the sigma and primary end-to-end anastomosis. We did not find in the literature consulted any cases of this illness under twenty years of age.
