Diverticulosis of the vermiform appendix is an uncommon entity with incidence of 0.2~2.0% in surgical pathologic specimens. Inflammation, perforation, and hemorrhage will be complications of appendiceal diverticulum. Without these complications, appendiceal diverticulum is asymptomatic. Authors experienced intussusception combined with appendiceal diverticulum. (J Korean Surg Soc 2007;72:319-322)
