Abstract

Mesenteric venous thrombophlebitis secondary to inflammatory processes such as diverticulitis and appendicitis is a rare disease; however, it can nonetheless cause bowel ischemia and infarctions. Radiologic diagnosis is vital for mesenteric venous thrombophlebitis complicated with diverticulitis due to its non-specific clinical presentation and very low incidence. We report a case of a 61-year-old woman with superior mesenteric vein thrombosis and ileocecal diverticulitis on CT, which was resolved after treatment with a combination of antibiotic therapy and right hemicolectomy.
