Diverticulitis is the infection or inflammation of bulges and pockets that form in the intestine wall. Learn more about its symptoms and treatment options.
People 40 years and older often develop bulges in their intestine wall that can lead to the formation of pockets. This condition is known as diverticulosis, while each pocket is called a diverticulum (diverticuli is the plural form).
When the diverticulum does not present any symptoms — which is quite common — there is no need for anything to be done. However, these pockets can get inflamed or infected, in which case diverticulitis has occurred.
