Epiploic appendages are peritoneal protrusions of sub-serosal adipose tissue that usually arise from the colon. Inflammation or ischaemic process of epiploic appendages is termed as epiploic appendagitis, a rare subtype of intra-peritoneal focal fat infarction. It's a great mimicker of acute abdomen and can simulate acute appendicitis or acute diverticulitis. It's a self limiting condition which can be treated conservatively. The present case was clinically diagnosed as acute diverticulitis.doi:10.7860/IJARS/2019/38424:2454 doaj:f0ac900e7ca148428f09abba28155eaa fatcat:fhwgbexmvrdxzeuitugabkbsw4
