Were you looking for information about Diverticulitis? Divaticulitis is a common misspelling of diverticulitis.
Diverticulitis, a condition that may be associated with a low-fiber diet, occurs when abnormal pouches (diverticula) that form in the colon become inflamed. Doctors are unsure what causes the infection that takes place during a diverticulitis attack. The infections likely occur when stool or bacteria are caught in the diverticula.
