Sclerosing mesenteritis is a rare, combined inflammatory and fibrotic process of unknown etiology. Detailed cross-sectional imaging of this entity has been reported with computed tomography. The author presents an additional case of sclerosing mesenteritis demonstrated on fluorine-18 fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography with multidetector computed tomographic correlation.
