Omental infarction is a rare cause of acute abdomen that can present in both the pediatric and adult populations causing adhesions or abscesses. Presentation may mimic appendicitis; however, ultrasonography may not be sufficient. We discuss the importance of CT imaging for the pre-surgical diagnosis to avoid serious port-site injuries.
