Caption: Diverticular disease. Computed tomography (CT) scan of an axial section through the abdomen of a 77-year-old man affected by colonic diverticular disease (CDD) in the sigmoid colon (black, upper centre). CDD causes sacs (diverticula, white, upper centre) to form and protrude externally from the colon wall. These can become inflamed, infected and may rupture (diverticulitis). If ruptured, haemorrhaging may occur with inflammation of the peritoneum (the lining of the abdominal cavity) or abscess formation. Treatment requires antibiotic drugs. More severe cases may require surgery to remove part of the colon.
