Findings: A small round fatty lesion adjacent to the proximal sigmoid colon outlined by a ring of soft tissue attenuation, plus surrounding stranding of mesenteric fat. There is also a small focal thickening of the adjacent sigmoid colonic wall. No diverticula were noted in the entirity of the sigmoid colon (not shown).

Ddx: epiploic appendagitis

Exam: beta-HCG negative otherwise N/C

No MeSH data available.


Multiple axial CT images of the abdomen/pelvis demonstrates: small round fatty lesion adjacent to the proximal sigmoid colon outlined by a ring of soft tissue attenuation, plus surrounding stranding of mesenteric fat.  There is also a small focal thickening of the adjacent sigmoid colonic wall.  No diverticula were noted in the entirity of the sigmoid colon (not shown).
