Panniculitis-induced localized lipodystrophy
Panniculitis-induced localized lipodystrophy is a rare acquired localized lipodystrophy disorder characterized by eruption of tender occasionally painful erythematous nodules and plaques which enlarge radially and resolve into lipoatrophic lesions often located in the upper and lower limbs. Histologically lesions are characterized by lipophagic lobular panniculitis and absence of vasculitis.
