This article presents a case study related to pancreatic panniculitis. A 52-year-old woman had a 3-month history of multiple red-brown, tender subcutaneous nodules confined to the lower extremities and associated with a 15-kg weight loss. A skin incisional biopsy specimen revealed lymphocytic panniculitis with necrosis of fat cells, some appearing as ghost-like cells, consistent with pancreatic panniculitis. This rare form of panniculitis typically presents as tender, dull red lower extremity nodules that may ulcerate.
