Resumen

FRIAS ESPINOSA, Jorge Eduardo  y  JON IGLESIAS, Martín. Unique diverticulitis of the cecum. Rev Cubana Cir [online]. 2012, vol.51, n.4, pp.332-337. ISSN 0034-7493.

The cecal diverticulitis is a strange disease, difficult to be diagnosed, frequently confused with acute appendicular process. The primary diverticula or those of congenital origin are generally unique; they usually appear at younger age than the colic diverticular disease (secondary diverticula). Their presence in the right colon is less frequently reported, the diagnosis is often confused with that of acute appendicitis and most of cases undergo laparatomy. According to the scientific literature, the treatment is variable, ranging from diverticular resection to right hemi-cholectomy. The objective of this paper was to present the difficulties and the high frequency of errors in diagnosing this disease.

Palabras clave : cecal diverticula; diverticulosis; cecal diverticulitis.
