Diverticulitis is a gastrointestinal condition involving inflammation of diverticula, which are outpouchings or “bulges” in the large intestine that are caused by weak large intestine walls. The diverticula can form more commonly in certain parts of the large intestine, so diverticulitis symptoms can occur more commonly in particular locations on the abdomen. Furthermore, the inflammation and swelling of diverticula can lead to other more non-specific symptoms, which we will discuss in this lesson.
