Mesenteric lipodystrophy is a rare condition characterized by tumor-like expansion of the meso-colon. The etiology remains obscure, but autoimmunity, abdominal trauma, abdominal surgery, and ischemic injury have all been postulated.

We present the clinical, radiological, and pathological findings of such a case.
