ABSTRACT

Mesenteric panniculitis is a rare disease affecting adipose tissue of the mesentery that may result in the development of large masses in the abdomen. Diffuse chronic or intermittent abdominal pain is the most frequent symptom. It usually follows a benign course though surgery is sometime needed.

We describe a patient with recurrent abdominal pain who was diagnosed of mesenteric panniculitis. An abdominal CT scan oriented to the diagnosis and an open laparotomy and biopsy was needed for a definitive diagnosis. A brief review of the literature is added.
