Abstract

Sclerosing mesenteritis is a rare medical condition, affecting radix mesenterii. Its initial clinical appearance is very atypical. Pathological finding was non-specific and in most cases is associated with inflammatory process. Currently there is no imaging method confirming the diagnosis, which requires in most patients to make laparotomy with biopsy from the changed tissue. At least six months of conservative therapy are needed for the patient to become asymptomatic. The material presents our experience with a patient and brief literature review.
