Abstract

Jejunoileal diverticulosis (JID) is an acquired condition affecting up to 0.06-1.3% of the population of the United States, with a peak incidence of 60-80 years old. While often asymptomatic, JID can present in numerous ways ranging from chronic mal absorption to acute hemorrhage to perforation and sepsis. Treatment of JID is best catered to the presenting symptoms. The following review details the epidemiology, pathophysiology, diagnostic testing, presenting signs and symptoms, and treatment options for this uncommon disease.

Review summary

    The review paper by Coker et al aims to outline the epidemiology, pathophysiology, diagnostic testing and presenting signs/symptoms of jejunoileal diverticulosis (JID). The central thesis of the paper is provided in the abstract but this information should be reiterated in the introduction section indicating what the scope of the review is centered upon. The historical information is interesting but this section is poorly cited which must be addressed.
