The diverticular disease is rarely located in the small intestine (0.1-1.4%). The most important feature is due to the lack of a typical symptomatology which may appear only on the occasion of the complications it may incur (perforation, haemorrhage and so on). It isn't also infrequent that the surgeon may observe intestinal diverticles accidentally, on the occasion of laparotomies carried out in emergency or for other pathologies. The literature on intestinal diverticles is reviewed and personal experience in a clinical case presenting as acute abdomen is described.
