Core Tip This paper shows that of the 139 patients who underwent routine colonoscopy after an episode of acute diverticulitis, the incidence of adenomatous and malignant colonic polyps discovered were 10% and 0% respectively. These figures are similar to that in the general population. In addition all the polyps were discovered in the left colon, therefore a flexible sigmoidoscopy may be adequate for the purpose of excluding the presence of neoplastic lesions.
