Mesenteric panniculitis (MP) is non-specific inflammation of the adipose tissue that primarily involves the small bowel mesentery. Omental involvement has been rarely reported but we report a case of 25 years old woman with isolated lesser omental panniculitis. This patient was diagnosed by CT findings and recovered completely with conservative treatment. Invasive diagnostic methods or surgical exploration has been used to diagnose MP. However, all six reported cases of omental panniculitis including the current case showed a benign course; therefore, awareness of the CT findings is essential for the best diagnosis and management of omental panniculitis.
Key Words: Panniculitis; Omentum; Tomography, x-ray computed; Anti-inflammatory agents, non-steroidal
