Pneumatosis intestinalis is a usually benign condition which may affect any segment of the gastrointestinal tract from the stomach to rectum. Occasionally, however, it may be a grave prognostic sign. This article presents the spectrum of diagnostic radiographic features of the entity with emphasis on differentiation of the underlying etiologic factors. Representative examples of pneumatosis intestinalis complicating various gastrointestinal disorders are illustrated.
