: A rare complication of diverticulosis of the colon is a giant colonic diverticulum. The condition was first described in French literature in 1946 and English literature in 1953. We communicate four personal cases including diagnosis by different modalities, evolution and surgical treatment, photography of pathological specimens and X ray study of the resected giant diverticula and colonic segment. A short review of the related literature is included
