Colonic diverticulosis is a common condition and although the majority of patients are asymptomatic up to 20% experience altered bowel habit and abdominal pain. The mechanisms underlying these symptoms are unclear but several theories now exist. This article briefly outlines a model of GI perception and then highlights past and current theories that may explain the development of symptoms in patients with diverticulosis.
