encapsulate

To enclose, wrap or contain. Numerous electronic formats, including graphics, audio, video and especially network packets, are containers for the data. The actual data reside within the header and footer data of the container and are said to be "encapsulated" within the format. At the receiving end, the data are extracted ("decapsulated") for playback.

Sclerosing encapsulating peritonitis (SEP), also known as abdominal cocoon, was first described in 1907 by Owtschinnikow and characterized by a thick grayish-white fibrotic membrane, partially or totally encasing the small bowel.1 Clinically, it presents with recurrent episodes of abdominal distention, small bowel obstruction, nausea and anorexia, but some patients may be asymptomatic.4
