TORREGROSA SUAU, O; GUILLO QUILES, E  and  MORA RUFETE, A. Mesenteric panniculitis associated with the use of bisphosphonates: are these more proinflammatory than we know?. Rev Osteoporos Metab Miner [online]. 2017, vol.9, n.1, pp.35-37. ISSN 2173-2345.

Mesenteric panniculitis is characterized by chronic inflammation of the adipose tissue of the intestinal mesentery, and its etiology is unknown. It has been associated with malignancy, vasculitis, rheumatic diseases and the use of certain drugs. We present a case of panniculitis associated with bisphosphonate use, not previously described in the literature, thus suggesting its potential secondary proinflammatory effects.

Keywords : mesenteric panniculitis; bisphosphonates; proinflammatory.
