  • Slide 9 - Follow Up F/u post discharge – resolution of all her symptoms U/S of liver to ensure lesion stability What is mesenteric lymphadenitis: Mesenteric lymphadenitis is an inflammation of the lymph nodes on the wall of the mesentery Mesenteric lymphadenitis usually follow viral infection with the common cold, or with infection by Yersinia enterocolitica, Pseudo tuberculosis, Streptococcus viridansor Campylobacter jejuni
  • Slide 10 - Mesenteric Lymphadenitis CAUSE: The bugs gain access to the wall of the intestine, and invade the lymph nodes on the covering of the intestines called the mesentery. The small intestine is frequently more involved, but the large intestines or colon may also be involved. The lymph nodes become enlarged due to inflammatory process induced by the micro-organisms. The inflammatory process, coupled with the stretch effect on the wall of the mesentery by the enlarged lymph node cause pain. Pus may form in severe cases and spread to cause disseminated infection. Most times though, the infection resolves on it own without the need to do anything.
  • Slide 11 - Mesenteric Lymphadenitis The signs and symptoms of mesenteric lymphadenitis are very similar to those caused by appendicitis. They can however be differentiated from those of appendicitis by some subtle differences. Abdominal Pain. This is often located in the right lower abdomen or right iliac fossa. It is a colicky abdominal pain which just resolves momentarily without any intervention. Preceding Cold or Sore Throat. One thing in the history that gives away the diagnosis of mesenteric lymphadenitis is that of the presence of common cold or sore throat in the days or week before the onset of abdominal pain. Fever. There may be an associated fever, running up to 38.5 degrees centigrade.Vomiting. Patient may vomit. If they vomited before the onset of pain, appendicitis is most unlikely.Diarrhoea. There may be episodes of loose stools, especially where Yersinia infection is involved. Appendicitis could also cause diarrhoea. Anorexia. Usually, with mesenteric lymphadenitis, patients are still able to eat and drink. If a patient complains of abdominal pain, and appetite remains good, it is most unlikely he or she has appendicitis.
