Description

Acute omental infarction most commonly manifests with acute lower quadrant pain, with the most frequent site in the right lower quadrant; acute appendicitis is the main clinical differential diagnosis. This is in contrast with another condition, acute epiploic appendagitis, which is most commonly adjacent to the sigmoid colon and presents with left lower quadrant pain. It is important to correctly diagnose both acute epiploic appendagitis and acute omental infarction on ultrasound as both these conditions may be mistaken for an "acute abdomen”, and this may lead to unnecessary surgery.
