Segmental small bowel wall thickening and post-contrast hyper-enhancement mainly appreciated at the left iliolumbar region, with alternating stenotic and dilated segments of the affected bowel and proliferation of the surrounding fat.
This patient had a previous bowel segment resection for strictures and obstruction. At laparoscopy, narrowing and thick walls of a segment of mid-small bowel (ileum) about 2 feet long with multiple strictures, cobblestone appearance and fissuring ulcerations, mainly along the mesenteric border, as well as mesenteric fat thickening were noted. No evidence of malignancy. The following histopathology report confirmed the same.
