[Single diverticulum of perforated cecum. Report of 5 cases].Rev Esp Enferm Dig. 1990 Feb; 77(2):147-8.RE
Cecal diverticulitis is a relatively rare disease, which closely mimics the picture of acute appendicitis. At times it is difficult to differentiate from carcinoma. Five cases of cecal diverticulitis are reported, with a discussion of some salient features of this condition. Although two cases were treated with a right hemicolectomy, a plea for conservatism in the treatment of this disease is made.
