previous CT scan
mesenteric panniculitis - type of infection in abdomen

Follow up Ct scan
Minor ground glass opacity in the anterior aspect of the lower lobe- indicate inflammation or infection in lungs in your case infection.
the right ilaiac fossa lymnpoh nodes - indicate infection

With these findings most probably your infection is spreading to lung

nodular density is in the left anteruior chest subcutaneous plane- might not be related above feature - needs to be further investigated
