Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A 31-year-old man with a known congenital heart disease presented with cardial decompensation and an acute abdomen with tenderness in the right inferior abdominal quadrant. Because infectious parameters were slightly elevated, acute appendicitis was suspected. A CT scan showed an isolated focal infiltration of the omentum, superficial to the ascending colon, small amounts of ascites, and dilated hepatic and mesenteric veins. Laparoscopic resection and histopathologic examination confirmed hemorrhagic omental infarction due to thromboses of several small omental veins. This is a report on the pathogenesis, differential diagnoses, and CT findings of omental infarction.
