Lymphadenitis is a condition in which the lymph nodes become inflamed. When the condition affects the lymph nodes in the membrane that connects the bowel to the abdominal wall (mesentery), it's called mesenteric lymphadenitis.

A viral intestinal infection is the usual cause of mesenteric lymphadenitis, also known as mesenteric adenitis. It mainly affects children and teens.


Possible signs and symptoms of mesenteric lymphadenitis include:

  • Abdominal pain, often centered on the lower right side, but the pain can be more widespread
  • General abdominal tenderness
  • Fever
  • Mesenteric lymph node enlargement

Depending on what's causing the ailment, signs and symptoms might also include:

  • Diarrhea
  • Nausea and vomiting


The most common cause of mesenteric lymphadenitis is a viral infection, such as gastroenteritis — often called stomach flu. This infection causes inflammation in the lymph nodes in the thin tissue that attaches your intestine to the back of your abdominal wall (mesentery).

Other causes of mesenteric lymphadenitis include bacterial infection, inflammatory bowel disease and lymphoma.
