Abstract

Primary epiploic appendagitis are considered to be a rare cause of acute abdomen. They are frequently misdiagnosed as either acute appendicitis or acute diverticulitis and the diagnosis is usually made during surgery. We report a case in which computed tomography (CT) suggested the diagnosis and helped in avoiding unnecessary surgery.
