The epiploic appendages (also known as appendices epiploicae) are usually located on the anti-mesenteric surface of the colon, extending from the caecum to the rectosigmoid, and epiploic appendagitis (EA) is the inflammation of these appendages. We report a clinical image of epiploic appendagitis creating a diagnostic challenge.
