Solitary caecal diverticulitis as an unusual cause of a right iliac fossa mass: a case report

Solitary caecal diverticulitis as an unusual cause of a right iliac fossa mass: a case report

Journal of Medical Case Reports 1: 132

Inflammation of a solitary caecal diverticulum is an uncommon pathological condition. Preoperatively the condition is almost indistinguishable from appendicitis, and is often confused with carcinoma of the caecum during operation. The typical patient with this condition is male, Asian, and in the fourth decade of life. This case is unusual in that the patient was a 26-year-old Caucasian man.
