BACKGROUND: Goal directed therapy (GDT) is applied during the initial resuscitation of sepsis, known as early goal directed therapy (EGDT).

Although predominantly a disease in older adults diverticulitis does affect younger patients. The disease has been described as not only rare but virulent by some authors, and a young patient age is considered to be a relative indication for early sugery.

This study was a retrospective chart review of 22 patients with diverticulitis age 40 years and younger over the past 20 years...
