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.
