Such diverticula are found mainly in the caecum and ascending colon and are true diverticula, i.e. their wall is made up of all the layers of the bowel wall. When a solitary diverticulum of the caecum undergoes inflammation of the patients generally present with symptoms suggestive of acute appendicitis.
