Ulcerative colitis is an inflammatory disease the cause of which is unclear. Diverticulitis is caused by inflamed little orchestra on the wall of the colon.

These are two completely separate conditions although one patient can have both diagnoses at some point in time. It is very important to have a colonoscopy and GI/surgical evaluation to make the correct diagnosis as the treatments (medical and surgical) are very different.
