Sigmoid colon is redundant and there is ovoid fat density lesion with a high attenuation margin and surrounding fat stranding, adjacent to the sigmoid colon.
Features are consistent with epiploic appendagitis that is a rare self-limiting ischemic/inflammatory process involving appendix epiploica of the colon and may either be primary or secondary to adjacent pathology.
