Background: Perforated jejunal diverticulitis is an unusual entity that can present with acute abdominal pain. Due to the non-specific clinical findings, this condition is rarely diagnosed clinically. Case Report: We present the case of a 75-year-old man in whom a perforated jejunal diverticulitis complicated by abscess formation was diagnosed by computed tomography (CT). He underwent a laparotomy with resection of the involved jejunal segment. He had an uneventful recovery and was subsequently discharged. Conclusions: This case report demonstrates the utility of CT in accurately diagnosing this unusual entity that frequently perplexes clinicians.
