The subject of diverticula and their attending complications is one which is usually without drama and therefore usually without great interest to the average physician. The great majority of cases are not diagnosed clinically but are discovered during surgical procedures or, what is more common, during an examination by the roentgenologist searching for some other condition. It has been stated that "the average practitioner still fails to recognize it as one of the daily recurrent important diseases, or to include the search for its diagnosis among his routine examinations."1
It is our hope that this review will reawaken an interest
