Abstract:

Mesenteric Panniculitis (MP) is an inflammatory pathology of mesentery that generally appears incidentally in typical tomographic findings and is asymptomatic in most cases. There are difficulties in the approach of symptomatic patients, mainly abdominal pain when we are in the presence of associated pathologies such as neoplasms. Multiple studies have evaluated the relationship between PM and cancer trying to identify a possible prediction of neoplasms, progression or a paraneoplastic injury with contradictory results. We present the case of a patient with an advanced neuroendocrine tumor undergoing oncological management with MP, its clinical picture, diagnosis and management, and finally, a review of the literature is carried out with an emphasis on the available evidence on the association between PM and cancer.
