It is true for the people in Orient, i am always thinking they are replacing sigmoid or colon diverticula in the West. Do you think there is some role of much protein in the food??? This is the thickness of the muscularis propria in the left colon which is or ( was) thin in our people because of dietition. Anyway duodenal diverticula are very common here in contrast to the sigmoid ones.

Thanks Dr. Saeed for clear images.

Duodenum is the most common site for GI diverticulae followed by cecum.
