The mesentery is a structure comprising a double peritoneal layer that attaches the bowel to the abdominal wall. Mesenteric disease can cause various non-specific clinical symptoms in adults and is sometimes found incidentally during unrelated diagnostic imaging studies. CT plays an essential role in the diagnosis of mesenteric disease, which can present with various radiologic features, including a solid mass, cystic mass, or local or diffuse infiltration on CT. Some mesenteric diseases present with distinctive characteristics, while others share similar findings, thereby complicating their differential diagnosis. Therefore, understanding the radiological findings of mesenteric disease is important for accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment.
