A diverticulum is a sacular protrusion of the mucosa through the muscular intestinal wall in any portion of the gastrointestinal tract. The presence of multiple diverticula is called diverticulosis.


These herniations occur in weakened points of the intestinal wall where the vascular structures enter into the muscle layer. Except the Meckel´s diverticulum, unique true diverticulum composed of all of the intestine´s layers, the rest are false diverticula o pseudodiverticula, composed of mucosa and submucosa covered of serosa.


Small intestine diverticular disease is much less common than colonic diverticular disease. They can be found in duodenum, jejunum and/or ileum. Duodenal diverticula are approximately five times more common than jejunoileal diverticula.


Meckel´s diverticulum has characteristic origin, clinical features and complications and will be discussed apart.
