Best Answer

Diverticulitis develops from diverticulosis, which involves the formation of pouches (diverticula) on the outside of the colon. Diverticulitis results if one of these diverticula becomes inflamed. In complicated diverticulitis, bacteria may subsequently infect the outside of the colon if an inflamed diverticula bursts open. Crohn's disease and Diverticulitis affecting the colon can occur at the same sites, at the same time, but usually in older individuals. When they occur in combination they can carry a worse prognosis than either disease in isolation. It is possible that diverticulitis may initiate inflammatory changes which resemble Crohn's disease histologically, but do not carry the same clinical implications of chronic inflammatory bowel disease.
