a Axial CT image showing multiple diverticula (white arrows) on the mesenteric border of the jejunum, surrounded by inflammatory mesenteric fat. The arrowhead shows the communication between one diverticula and the jejunal lumen. b Intraoperative view of the jejunum showing multiple diverticula, the largest being partially covered with white fibrinous exudate.

Wall of a non-inflamed diverticulum (a, d, e) and an inflamed diverticulum (b, c, f). Kayexalate crystals (black arrows) are seen only in the lumen (star) and in the wall of the inflamed diverticulum. Thin and discontinuous smooth muscle bundles (arrowheads) are seen in the wall of some diverticula (d). g, h Close-up views of Kayexalate (g) and cholestyramine crystals (h); the former are basophilic with a striped or mosaic pattern and the latter are eosinophilic and more homogeneous (a-c and e-h: HE stain; d: Masson Trichrome stain).
