Excerpt from Surgery, Gynecology and Obstetrics, Vol. 37: An International Magazine; July to December, 1923
Diverticulum of the duodenum is a rare condition. Diverticulitis duodeni is even more rare. In other words, the proportion of duodenal pouches subject to inflammatory attacks, thus causing symptoms, is extremely small. Cases causing clinical manifesta tions have recently been recorded by Ernest K. Cullen, Dean Lewis, Walter M. Jones, and others, and many interesting articles have been written on the subject.
