Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Omental Infarction, the end result of impaired perfusion to the greater omentum, is a rare entity (JBCM Puylaert, Radiology 1992;185:169-172). We recently encountered three patients in whom computed tomography (CT) showed the characteristic findings of omental infarction. The diagnosis was subsequently confirmed intraoperatively and pathologically in two of the cases. The third case showed partial resolution on follow-up computed tomography. All three cases are presented with a brief review of the literature.
