  • Abstract

     

    Mesenteric panniculitis (MP) is a rare non-neoplastic inflammatory and fibrotic disease that affects the adipose tissue of the mesentery of the small intestine. The specific etiology of the disease is unknown. The diagnosis is suggested by the computed tomography (CT). We reported a case of the mesenteric panniculitis diagnosed by CT as a complication of Churg-Strauss syndrome. MP can present as asymptomatic or as a variety of gastrointestinal and systemic manifestations, including abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting, diarrhea, weight loss and fever.
