PMID: 36072161.


Epiploic appendagitis is a rare and commonly misdiagnosed cause of acute abdominal pain. Treatment for the initial presentation of epiploic appendagitis is conservative management with anti-inflammatory medications. There is no consensual treatment algorithm for recurrent appendagitis as some studies recommend conservative management and others recommend surgical excision. This case report will cover a patient who presented with recurrent epiploic appendagitis and was treated with conservative management.
