DIVERTICULITIS

Definately not diverticular disease.


This is really a red herring in this case. The diverticular disease had obviously been there a long time, but this patient's symptoms are acute. The symptoms he'd be suffering would include abdominal pain, diarrhoea and constipation, and rectal bleeding, none of which came up in the history.

Look for something a little more sudden - possibly to do with his fall?
