Appendiceal Diverticulitis (AD) is a rare and a poorly comprehended appendiceal pathology. AD should be considered in the differential diagnosis of acute appendicitis due to the much higher risk of perforation and associated neoplasia, particularly carcinoid tumors and mucinous adenoma. Although more frequently acquired, AD may be congenital. AD represents one of the main causes of lower abdominal pain which has a similar clinical presentation as acute appendicitis. Diagnosis is usually made at pathology. Some cases were diagnosed on preoperative radiologic imaging. Elective appendectomy is recommended for incidentally detected AD. Pathologic evaluation of appendectomy specimens is mandatory. We report a case of AD that mimics acute appendicitis.
