Diverticula or diverticulum, if there is only one, are small sacs or pouches that form in the large intestine (colon). They are most likely to develop in the lower part of the colon.

Diverticulitis occurs when the diverticula become infected and filled with bacteria. The main cause of diverticulitis is a low fibre diet.
