Languages of publication



In this case report, we describe a rare event: acute inflammation of the true cecal diverticulum. Emergency surgery enabled proper diagnosis and management of this condition. Diagnostic approaches and the management of this disease are described in detail and based on literature review. In conclusion, pathologies of cecal diverticula should be considered in differential diagnosis of pain in the right iliac fossa.
