Diverticulosis and Ulcerative Colitis

Antonio Rispo et al (http://www.springerlink.com/content/e5884577n154176h/) has studied the prevalence of diverticulosis in 85 patients with ulcerative colitis and older than 45 years, compared to the prevalence in people without ulcerative colitis. Patients with ulcerative colitis had a significant lower prevalence of diverticulosis (7 of 85) compared to controls (24 of 85). All seven patients with both ulcerative colitis and diverticulosis had been diagnosed with ulcerative colitis when older than 45, making it probable that the diverticular disease had developed before the patients got ulcerative colitis. The reason why patients with ulcerative colitis do not develop colonic diverticulas is probably the motor alterations caused by chronic bowel wall inflammation.
