Solitary diverticulum on the medial aspect of the cecum just inferior to the ileocecal valve.
The diverticulum is thickening with surrounding inflammatory change. No free fluid or collection.
Normal retrocecal appendix.
Normal upper abdomen.
Right sided diverticulitis is much less common than other sites in the colon. The imaging appearances are identical, although the clinical presentation is more of that associated with appendicitis.
In this case a normal appendix is well illustrated.
