Mimicker of Renal Colic: Mesenteric Panniculitis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A Mesenteric panniculitis is an uncommon disorder with unknown etiology. It may cause nonspesific abdominal or systemic symptoms. Radiological modalitis especially computed tomography are very helpful to make a diagnosis. Hence, the radiologist should be familiar with its tomographic findings to avoid further examinations and unnecessary surgery. We report computed tomography findings of mesenteric panniculitis in an adult patient with renal colic.
