Computed tomography in Whipple disease

J Comput Assist Tomogr. 1983 Dec;7(6):1101-2. doi: 10.1097/00004728-198312000-00035.


A case of Whipple disease demonstrated on computed tomography (CT) a large mesenteric mass of low density and thickened folds in the jejunum, which was confirmed by barium studies. Retroperitoneal manifestations were absent. The importance of CT in demonstrating the extraintestinal manifestations of Whipple disease is emphasized.
