ABSTRACT

Background and Aims

We present a case of 72-year-old man with liquefying panniculitis possibly in association with mild skin trauma due to scratching and contact with the contaminated water. There was no evidence of underlying pancreatic neoplasm or pancreatitis or other systemic conditions that might be involved in this case. Skin biopsy showed subcutaneous fat necrosis with neutrophil-dominant mixed inflammatory infiltrates. The skin lesions responded well to treatment with systemic corticosteroids. There was no sign of recurrence after three years of follow-up.
