L'infarctus du grand épiploon est une cause rare de douleurs abdominales aiguës et survient le plus fréquemment au niveau du flanc droit. À gauche, sa survenue est rare chez l'adulte et à notre connaissance n'a jamais été décrite chez l'enfant. Son diagnostic, tout en étant difficile, est important puisqu'il peut éviter une intervention chirurgicale inutile. Nous présentons 1 cas d'infarctus segmentaire gauche du grand épiploon chez une fillette de 11 ans, diagnostiqué par imagerie, traité de façon conservatrice, et suivi par échographie jusqu'à la disparition complète de la lésion.
