Caption

Stercolith in colon with diverticulosis. Endoscope view of a stercolith in the colon of a patient with diverticulosis. A stercolith is a form of calcified impacted faeces, also known as a faecolith. Here, the stercolith is in a diverticula, a sac formed in diverticulosis. Diverticulosis causes sacs (diverticula) to form and protrude externally from the colon wall. These can become inflamed, infected, and may rupture (diverticulitis). Treatment requires antibiotic drugs. More severe cases may require surgery to remove part of the colon.
