Diverticulosis is a condition where sac-like outpouching develops in the intestinal wall. Intestinal diverticula may be true or false. In a true diverticulum, all the layers of the intestine form the diverticulum. In false or pseudo-diverticulum, only the innermost layers, i.e. the mucosa and the submucosa herniate out through the muscle layers at a weak point in the muscle. False diverticula are more common than true diverticula.
