Diverticulitis & Diverticulosis Center

Diverticular disease is the formation of small pouches (diverticula) in the colon. When these are not inflamed or irritated, the condition is called diverticulosis. If the diverticula become infected or irritated, diverticulitis develops. Meckel's diverticulum occurs when someone is born with a small sac in the ileum (the last section of the small intestine).
