Diverticular disease of the colon is a common condition in western societies; by the age of 85 two thirds of the population in developed countries will have developed colonic diverticula [1,2]. While most patients will remain asymptomatic, a sizable portion will suوٴer from complications associated with diverticulosis, the most common of which acute diverticulitis (AD) is occurring in 10-25% of the patients . In most patients, the disease is mild, responds well to antibiotic therapy and does not recur .
However, in recent years, accumulating data suggests that the inflammator\ response associated with AD is not always an isolated short-term event, but, in some cases, a prolonged inflammator\ process with exacerbations and remissions.
