The management of acute diverticulitis maybe better if we have prognostic markers of evolution.

Hypothesis: C-reactive protein maybe a good prognostic marker of evolution of acute diverticulitis.

The investigators need to know the values of C-reactive protein to predict evolution of acute diverticulitis.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • C-Reactive Protein [ Time Frame: 24 Hours ]

Estimated Enrollment: 30
Study Start Date: April 2013
Estimated Study Completion Date: April 2014
Estimated Primary Completion Date: April 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Acute Diverticulitis
We measured C-reactive protein in all the patients diagnosed with acute diverticulitis
Other: C-reactive protein
measured C-reactive protein in all patients with acute diverticulitis

Detailed Description:

A prospective observational study. All the patients with TC-diagnosis of acute diverticulitis (AD) had a C-reactive protein (PCR) in the initial blood test.

The investigators will predict evolution of AD with the PCR initial.
