Hi.... Mesenteric lymphadenitis occurs when the lymph nodes of the mesentery, or membrane between the intestine and the abdominal wall, are inflamed..... Most cases of mesenteric lymphadenitis are neither serious or life threatening. However, mesenteric lymphadenitis may become life threatening if the swollen lymph nodes are caused by a serious bacterial infection that goes untreated..... Consult surgeon....
