Abstract

The aim of this retrospective study was to determine the causes and significance of bowel wall thickening on abdominal computed tomography. Of 175 consecutive CT abdomens identified, diverticulitis (28%) and infection (24.6%) were the most common causes. Flare of known inflammatory bowel disease (7.4%) and new cancer (5.7%) were relatively uncommon causes. Overall, 50/175 (28.6%) patients underwent subsequent colonoscopy, and of these, 41/50 (82%) were either normal or showed uncomplicated diverticular disease only.
