[Perforated cecum diverticulum as cause for acute abdomen].Schweiz Rundsch Med Prax. 1990 Dec 11; 79(50):1573-4.SR
Perforation of a solitary cecal diverticulum is a rare cause of acute abdomen and an uncommon differential diagnosis for acute appendicitis. Nine hundred cases have been described since Potiers first description in 1912, either localized in the cecum or in the ascending colon. A further case and its course are described.
