Abstract

Mesenteries are extensions of the visceral and parietal peritoneum consisting of fat, vessels, nerves, and lymphatics. Mesenteric masses have a wide differential diagnosis with neoplastic, infectious, or inflammatory etiologies and can either be solid or cystic. Imaging features are critical for the diagnosis. We review the epidemiology, imaging spectrum, and differentiating features and treatment of mesenteric masses.
