Lupus panniculitis is a rare manifestation of cutaneous lupus erythematosus, which may lead to major aesthetic sequelae with a severe impact on patients' quality of life. We report 2 cases supporting the short- and long-term efficacy and safety of lipofilling in the treatment of lupus panniculitis-induced atrophy. These observations pave the way for prospective, larger-scale studies in patients with scarring lupus panniculitis, provided that the autoimmune pathogenic process is in complete, stable remission...

RATIONALE: Lupus panniculitis (LP) is a unique variant of cutaneous lupus erythematosus. Clinical manifestations are typically mild and include erythema, nodules, and small ulcers. In certain cases, diagnosing LP may be challenging. Skin overlying the typical subcutaneous inflammation may appear normal, and bacterial superinfections of the skin sometimes mask the underlying LP. It has been suggested that a computed tomography (CT) scan may help to identify obscure LP lesions. Here, we report a case of a 54-year-old woman with an unusually severe form of LP, in which the full disease extent was only revealed by a fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET)/CT scan...

Mycobacterium W (Mw) vaccine has been found to be effective in the treatment of leprosy and warts. Despite increasing use of Mw immunotherapy, data on its safety is limited. We report a series of eight patients who developed persisting injection site granulomatous reaction following Mw immunotherapy and were successfully treated with minocycline. Eight patients with persistent nodular swelling at the site of Mw injections were identified. Seven of them had received Mw immunotherapy for cutaneous warts and one for verrucous epidermal nevus...

A Mesenteric panniculitis is an uncommon disorder with unknown etiology. It may cause nonspesific abdominal or systemic symptoms. Radiological modalitis especially computed tomography are very helpful to make a diagnosis. Hence, the radiologist should be familiar with its tomographic findings to avoid further examinations and unnecessary surgery. We report computed tomography findings of mesenteric panniculitis in an adult patient with renal colic.

Isolated omental panniculitis is a rare entity mostly seen in adults. It presents with the inflammation of the fatty tissue of the omentum. The symptoms may vary from local (e.g. abdominal tenderness or palpable mass) to systemic manifestations including abdominal pain, back pain, fever, weight loss and bowel disturbances. We presented this case as a first awareness of omental panniculitis in a child which must be kept in mind at the differential diagnosis of ileus so that unnecessary surgeries might be avoided...

Alpha-1 antitrypsin (A1AT) is a 52-kDa, acute phase glycoprotein encoded by the protease inhibitor (PI) locus, located on the long arm of chromosome 14 (14q31-32.3). Its structure is composed of a total of 7 exons, 4 coding (II, III, IV, and V) and 3 non-coding (Ia, Ib, and Ic). A1AT is produced primarily by hepatocytes and acts as a serine protease inhibitor with anti-protease and immunoregulatory activities. The main target of A1AT is neutrophil elastase (NE), an enzyme released during a neutrophil-mediated inflammatory process...

OBJECTIVE: Cutaneous manifestations of pediatric systemic lupus erythematosus cause significant morbidity. Lenalidomide, a thalidomide analogue, has shown promise treating cutaneous lupus erythematosus in adults. Our objective was to evaluate lenalidomide's efficacy and safety in treating refractory cutaneous manifestations of pediatric systemic lupus erythematosus. METHODS: We performed a retrospective chart review of 10 adolescents who received lenalidomide for recalcitrant cutaneous lupus erythematosus...

Lupus erythematosus panniculitis, also known as lupus profundus, is a variant in the clinicopathological spectrum of lupus erythematosus (LE) affecting about 2%-3% of LE patients. A linear configuration of LE panniculitis has been reported rarely with rare reports describing the coexistence of different forms of cutaneous LE and localized morphea. In this study, the authors present a 9-year-old girl with linear arrangement of subcutaneous nodules on her left forearm. Microscopic findings from 2 biopsies included lymphocytes at the dermoepidermal junction with mild interface dermatitis, a dense lymphocytic infiltrate that was concentrated around adnexae and subcutaneous fat in concert with thickened collagen bundles and mild widening of fibrous septae surrounding fat lobules...

BACKGROUND: Inflammatory leg nodules are a diagnostically challenging group of dermatoses with limited tools for diagnosis. Considerable overlapping patterns exist despite their distinct clinical and histological features. We attempted to understand if undertaking investigations and studying the clinical course and treatment response can help in differentiating these dermatoses. METHODS: Forty-three patients presenting with inflammatory leg nodules underwent a series of investigations apart from histopathology...

Mesenteric panniculitis is a nonspecific inflammation involving the mesentery. Its clinical presentation is variable depending on the stage of the disease. Clinical signs are usually pain but half of the patients remain asymptomatic. Palpable abdominal mass, weight loss, nausea and vomiting. There may be an inflammatory syndrome of variable intensity. Panniculitis is suspected based on scan showing hyperdense mesentery with adhesions to adjacent organs. Histologically there is adipocyte degeneration causing foreign body reaction and appear lymphoplasmacytic inflammatory lesions...

We present a 35-year-old woman with left axillary mass. Histopathological analysis revealed metastatic infiltration for BRAF-mutant melanoma. F-FDG PET/CT showed bilateral axillary lymphadenopathy as well as bone and subcutaneous metastases. Dabrafenib (a BRAF inhibitor) and trametinib (a MEK inhibitor) combined therapy was started with a complete metabolic response established by 2 consecutive PET/CT scans. A follow-up PET/CT showed FDG uptake in several subcutaneous nodules in both distal legs, suggesting metastases...

INTRODUCTION: Pancreatic disease can be complicated by extrabdominal manifestations such as panniculitis and polyarthritis. The symptomatic triad comprising pancreatic disease, panniculitis and polyarthritis is also known as PPP syndrome and is characterized by severe chronic sequels and high mortality rate. We describe a case of PPP syndrome successfully treated with spleen preserving total pancreatectomy; in addition we performed a literature review. PRESENTATION OF CASE: A 67 years old male presented panniculitis and polyarthritis without clinical abdominal symptoms...

A young woman presented with panniculitis, fever and blood cytopenias, later going on to develop hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis. Further evaluation revealed the presence of subcutaneous panniculitis like T-cell lymphoma (SPTCL). With this case we present an approach to panniculitis, a commonly encountered skin manifestation with a wide range of differentials. We discuss the close similarity between lupus erythematous panniculitis (LEP) and lymphoma.

An 83-year-old male presented with distended abdomen. A computed tomography scan demonstrated pleural effusion, ascites, peritoneal thickness, and panniculitis. Multiple small white nodules of peritoneum were observed during a laparoscopy examination, and biopsy specimens revealed noncaseating granulomas. Gallium scintigram demonstrated an accumulation in the peritoneum and revealed a panda sign that has been described as an indication of sarcoidosis. Although sarcoidosis rarely induces peritonitis with ascites, peritoneal sarcoidosis was diagnosed and he began receiving steroid therapy...

Subcutaneous panniculitis-like T cell lymphoma (SPTCL) is a rare condition usually considered as favourable. However, it is not known whether polychemotherapy or immunosuppressive-based therapy is the best approach for treating SPTCL. Using data collected between 2000 and 2012 in France, we analysed clinical, biological and pathological data of 27 patients with SPTCL. Medical history revealed that 40% of patients had been previously diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder and 22% with inflammatory panniculitis...

Alopecia in a linear pattern is very rare with only a few cases reported in the medical literature. We report a case of linear non scarring alopecia involving the scalp in a 17-year-old boy with a histological diagnosis of lupus panniculitis. We report this case because of its rarity and also the inclusion of this entity as one of the rare differential of non scarring alopecia.

BACKGROUND: Mesenteric panniculitis (MP) is mostly an associated sign of an intra-abdominal or systemic inflammatory primary disease. Nevertheless, etiological and differential diagnosis of idiopathic MP can be challenging when an associate primary cause is not in the foreground. METHODS: We report here the case of an isolated small bowel Crohn's disease, long time considered as idiopathic MP. RESULTS: This patient presented to our department with a 10-year history of acute abdominal symptoms evolving with flare-up and remission...
