Colonic polyps or carcinomas located within a colonic diverticulum are very rare phenomena. There are a few reports in the literature describing adenocarcinoma arising within colonic diverticulum. Endoscopic resection of the polyp poses a risk of perforation because of the lack of muscular coats in the diverticulum. Therefore, special care should be taken in the treatment of such patients.
