Jan 27, 2016 · Mesenteric Panniculitis or Sclerosing Mesenteritis in Digestive Health

Hi Lisa,

Jan 27, 2016 · Mesenteric Panniculitis or Sclerosing Mesenteritis in Digestive Health

My dad has had two surgeries since November 2015 for a small bowel obstruction that is still unresolved. He is currently on TPN for nutrition. He is likely headed for a third surgery later this year. Based on the pathology reports of biopsies taken at second surgery and the discovery of a large inflammatory mass attached to the small bowel, we believe this may be a severe case of mesenteric panniculitis. We have been unsuccessful in trying to get his current doctors to obtain definitive diagnosis so that a course of steroids may be attempted. Does anyone have any references for GI doctors with expertise in mesenteric panniculitis especially in the Fort Lauderdale or West Palm Beach area of Florida? Thanks.
