Abstract

In two cases of suspected appendicitis, laparotomy revealed an inflammatory mass medially in the caecum. Colonic resection was performed in both cases and the final diagnosis was solitary caecal diverticulitis. When inflammation of a caecal diverticulum is recognized at laparotomy, simple diverticulectomy is the procedure of choice, but colonic resection is recommended if malignancy cannot be excluded or inflammatory changes are severe.
