Mesenteric panniculitis is a rare disease of the adipose tissue of mesentery. Ascites is an unusual presentation. We report a case of panniculitis whose initial presentation was an obesity-hypoventilation syndrome with pulmonary hypertension. Respiratory disorders were related to abundant ascites. Panniculitis cure and ascites disappearance allowed return to normal pulmonary function and pulmonary artery pressure.
