  Abstract:
  Mesenteric lipodystrophy is a rare condition characterized by a nonspecific inflammatory process that involves the root of the mesentery in a lipoma-like lesion. We reported a case of sclerosing mesenteritis presenting as recurrent abdominal pain, profound weight loss, dilated cardiomyopathy, malabsorption and a mass on computed tomography scan of the abdomen in a 42 years old man with previous history of lymphoma. Because of the wider differential diagnosis in such cases, the patient underwent an extensive workup culminating in a laparoscopy with biopsy. This case illustrated that mesenteric lipodystrophy should be included in the differential diagnosis of retroperitoneal and mesenteric tumor.
