Abstract

Epiploic appendagitis is a rare cause of acute abdomen and is diagnostically challenging as it mimics common causes of acute abdomen. However, advancements in computerised tomography/Ultrasound imaging have improved the frequency and confidence of diagnosing epiploic appendagitis, preventing unnecessary surgeries. We present a case of an acute abdomen who had to undergo laparoscopy before being diagnosed with epiploic appendagitis, underscoring the difficulty in diagnosis.
