Abstract

We report a case of subcutaneous fat necrosis associated with pancreatitis that may be the first case in Korean literature as for we know. The patient was a 41-year-old man who presented erythema nodosum-like erythematous subcutaneous nodules on both lower extremities. Histopathologic findings showed subcutaneous focal fat necrosis and ghost-like cells. Granular basophilic material was deposited in and around the necrotic fat cells and stained positively with von Kossa stain. The lesions subsided gradually without any specific treatment, as the underlying pancreatitis was ameliorated.
