Mesenteric panniculitis (MP) is a rare condition affecting the mesentery of the small bowel and/or colon. Obtaining a diagnosis is dependent on radiological and histological findings. With the increasing use of abdominal CT, more cases of MP will be discovered. We report a case of MP accidentally found at CT in a 64 year-old woman who was evaluated for upper abdominal discomfort. Percutaneous ultrasonography guided biopsy secured the diagnosis. There is no consensus on the treatment and management of MP. An approach guided by the patient's symptoms seems suitable.
