Acute colon pathology as diverticulitis is a frequent and important gastrointestinal disease, but the clinical diagnosis is often difficult to state. Several radiological studies have been used to assist in the diagnosis of acute diverticulitis (e.g. barium enema, ultrasound, and computed tomography (CT). Colovenous fistula is a rare complication of diverticulitis. We have analyzed MSCT imaging role in evaluation of such complicated form of diverticular disease.
