Cecal diverticulitis is a rare cause of acute abdomen and is often confused with appendicitis because of physical examination findings that suggest appendicitis. Here I present a case of an 48-year-old female with cecal diverticulitis who was medically treated. This study aimed to create awareness for cecal diverticulitis and help avoid unnecessary surgical procedures for medically treatable pathologies.
