Diverticulitis
 
Standard Definition

Diverticulitis refers to portions of the colon that form abnormal outpouchings (diverticuli). High-pressure inside the intestine may cause these diverticuli to develop in areas of weakness within the wall of the colon. When the outpouchings become inflamed (often as a result of bacterial infection), serious complications such as cramping pains, fever, and nausea can result.

 
 
Underlying Disruption in Function

Diverticular disease is increasingly common with age and has a close link with modern, processed, low fibre diets. It may also occur in association with constipation due to the shared cause.
