Hi, mesenteric panniculitis is a rare benign inflammatory condition of unknown origin that affects the mesenteric fat. Mesenteric panniculitis resolves spontaneously in most cases, however, palpable masses may often be found between 2 and 11 years after diagnosis. In general, treatment has been reserved for symptomatic cases. Incidental masses may be observed and left untreated. So, if you are asymptomatic at present, you can follow up with your doctor for monitoring. Regards.
I have a young daughter with Sclerosing mesenteritis, and as I'm sure you've found, MP and SM are very similar and often times called the same thing. Difference is in the staging. We have an amazing support private medical group with 66 or so members so far. Would love to add you into our group. Thanks. Write back and I can get info from you etc and get you included if you like.
