Intra-abdominal fat is abundantly present in both the peritoneum and retroperitoneum. Fat necrosis or inflammation are common findings in abdominal imaging. The most common pathologies that we encounter are epiploic appenda­gitis, omental infarction, mesenteric panniculitis, and encapsulated fat necrosis. Less common entities that can occur are pancreatic saponification, heterotopic mesenteric ossification, and pseudolipoma of the capsule of Glisson. These entities can mimic more urgent pathologies such as appendicitis, diverticulitis, or malignancies.
