Özet

INTRODUCTION: Jejunal diverticulosis is a rare intestinal pathology with an incidence of 0.5-1%. While most cases are asymptomatic, 30-40% of the cases may become symptomatic with chronic abdominal pain, malabsorption, hemorrhage, diverticulitis, obstruction, abscess formation and, rarely, diverticula perforation. It is generally localized on the mesenteric side and it develops from the entry points of the vessels into the jejunum.
