Abstract

We present a case report of a patient with imaging findings of right colon diverticulitis that mimics colon cancer. The computed tomography showed a segment of narrowing with shoulder formation at ascending colon suggesting cancer. The colonoscopy and the follow-up imaging clarify the diagnosis of diverticulitis. We assess the value of computed tomography findings of acute diverticulitis in excluding cancer.

AbbreviationCTComputer tomography.
