In brief: Mesenteric adenitis

Us, ct. Mesenteric adenitis (enlargement of lymph nodes in abdominal mesentery) is commonly seen in conditions that mimic acute appendicitis.
When accompanied by inflammation of the ileum, & crohn's disease has been excluded, consider bacterial infection caused by yersinia enterocolitica, campylobacter, salmonella. Adenitis may also reflect non-gi inflammatory processes in the abdomen.
