In this video, we show the case of a 70-year-old male patient who had several attacks during the last weeks, abdominal pain, and fever. After CT-scan, he was diagnosed a perisigmoid abscess. We diagnosed a lot of diverticula and we made a diagnosis of sigmoiditis with perisigmoid abscess. So this is the Hinchey II two pelvic abscess. We began the medical treatment and finally we had several attacks and did a new examination, a new CT-scan, and an endoscopy and not a sigmoid abscess, but a voluminous diverticulum with an abscess, was diagnosed. So it was decided to operate on the patient.
