WHITTLE P, Carolina et al. Imaging in infrequent digestive diverticula. Case series. Rev. chil. radiol. [online]. 2018, vol.24, n.2, pp.67-78. ISSN 0717-9308.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-93082018000200067.

Diverticula may occur in any segment of the digestive tract: esophagus, stomach, duodenum, jejunum, ileum, appendix, and colon. Its clinical manifestations are nonspecifi which may turn diffiult an early diagnosis, leading to a higher risk of complications. We present a cases serie of atypical digestive diverticula and to describe the fidings on the different imaging techniques. We performed a retrospective review on the imaging computer archives of our institution. The atypical diverticula were selected. Zenker and Killian-Jamieson’s diverticulums in esophagus. In stomach ocasionally gastric diverticula. Diverticula in small intestine have a low prevalence, the most common location is duodenum. Colonic diverticula may present a atypical location or presentation. The appendicular and Meckel diverticuli are uncommon. The digestive diverticula are uncommon, except the colonic ones. The radiologist must be familiar with it’s different locations in order to be able to recognize it and diagnose it properly.

Palabras clave : Digestive diverticula; diverticulitis; digestive imaging; gastro intestinal diverticula; esophageal diverticulum.
