Abstract

Sclerosing mesenteritis is a rare benign disease originated from the mesenteries. It can be related to autoimmune disease, vasculitis, ischemia, infection, trauma and operation, but most of cases are idiopathic. The overall prognosis of sclerosing mesenteritis is usually good with benign, course. However, no consensus of treatment has yet been established. We report a case of spontaneous partial regression of sclerosing mesenteritis presented as a huge mass and diagnosed by finding of contrast enhanced abdominal computed tomography and percutaneous ultrasonography guided needle biopsy.
