Acute Renal Failure Related to Recto Sigmoid Diverticular Perforation

Diverticula in the colon are very common, but only 10-20% of the diverticulum carriers develop a diverticulitis. The inflammation can lead in 15% of the patients to a free perforation. In this case the patient has a recto sigmoid perforation due to a diverticulum. The infraperitoneal free air leads to a compression of the ureters with consensual acute renal failure.
