and mesenteric panniculitis - clinical experience and radiological features.
Mesenteric disorders are classified based on the main component of the pathology: fat necrosis, fibrosis, and chronic inflammation in the mesentery resulting in mesenteric lipodistrophy, sclerosing mesenteritis
, and MP, respectively.
is a rare disorder that is characterized by chronic inflammation of the mesenteric adipose tissue.

The diagnosis of sclerosing mesenteritis
was considered and she presented to our institution for further evaluation and management.
For the 75 cases considered nonamplified, diagnoses were lipoma (n = 46); intramuscular lipoma (n = 11); pleomorphic lipoma (n = 1); myofibroblastoma (n = 1); sclerosing mesenteritis
(n = 2); lipoma with fat necrosis (n = 4); pleomorphic sarcoma, not otherwise specified (n = 2); low-grade spindle cell neoplasm not further classifiable (n = 1); and benign mesenchymal myxoid neoplasm not further classifiable (n = 1).

In humans, this disorder has been referred to as mesenteric panniculitis, mesenteric lipodystrophy, and sclerosing mesenteritis
. However, all are considered to be a continuum of one primary inflammatory process, characterized by a variable degree of fat necrosis, chronic inflammation, and, eventually, fibrosis.
Another disease that can emulate a desmoid-type fibromatosis is the "sclerosing mesenteritis
" which presents itself as a well-defined mass that involves the mesenteric vessels.
Laparoscopic surgical biopsy and pathologic analysis determined the final diagnosis of sclerosing mesenteritis
