Abstract

Diverticulosis of the vermiform appendix is an uncommon entity with incidence of 0.2~2.0% in surgical pathologic specimens. Inflammation, perforation, and hemorrhage will be complications of appendiceal diverticulum. Without these complications, appendiceal diverticulum is asymptomatic. Authors experienced intussusception combined with appendiceal diverticulum.
