appendagitis is the inflammation of epiploic
appendages due to appendageal torsion or spontaneous venous thrombosis (9).
Computed tomography revealed widely distended small intestines, but epiploic
appendagitis was not indicated (Figure 1, 2).
appendages are peritoneal pouches that arise from the serosal surface of the colon except the rectum.
An ovoid fat density structure with surrounding peripheral inflammatory change was noted in the left lower quadrant adjacent to a loop of descending colon, consistent with epiploic
appendagitis (Figure 1).
appendagitis (EA) is a rare cause of acute abdominal pain that is usually benign and self-limiting and can be treated conservatively with analgesics and antiinflammatory medications (1-3).
appendices (or appendices epiploicae) constitute small pouches of subserosal fat that project into the peritoneal cavity and line in two rows parallel to the tenia coli of the colon.
CT showed a pericolic oval lesion of fat attenuation with a hyper-attenuating ring and central dot sign in the same region that was diagnostic for epiploic
appendagitis (EA); (Figure 2).
appendagitis (EA) is a rare entity caused by the inflammation of the appendix epiploica.
The CT findings were consistent with a diagnosis of epiploic
