Abstract

Panniculitis is an inflammation of subcutaneous fat tissue, and found in variety of clinical setting, like erythema nodosum, lupus or other connective tissue diseases. Panniculitis, as a clinical feature of dermatomyositis, is rare and should be included in one of the sign to be differentiated. We present a 77-year-old female dermatomyositis patient who showed a clinically and histologically evident lobular panniculitis, and successfully treated with oral prednisolone.
