|Diverticular lesions of the thorax: a comprehensive review.|
Diverticula are defined as localized outpouchings of the wall of the involved organ. They can represent true diverticula, false diverticula or pitfalls. Thoracic diverticular lesions are uncommon and have a broad spectrum of associated pathologies. They can be found in multiples structures of the thorax and be associated with diseases, produce or even be predictors of them. Imaging techniques, as CT or MR, are key for the diagnosis and Radiologists play a pivotal role in the differential diagnosis and in the evaluation of possible complications.
