Glob Pediatr Health 2018 1;5:2333794X18803552. Epub 2018 Oct 1.

Wayne State University, Detroit, MI, USA.

Newborn skin nodules are usually benign and self-resolving skin condition. Differential diagnosis of such lesions include cysts, hemangioma, abscess, cellulitis, sclerema neonatorum, subcutaneous fat necrosis, neurofibromatosis, benign tumors, or malignant tumors such as rhabdomyosarcoma, infantile fibrosarcoma, or neuroblastoma. We report a case of congenital subcutaneous fat necrosis in a 7-day-old baby presenting with multiple erythematous mass on back. Read More

Semin Diagn Pathol 2017 May 27;34(3):261-272. Epub 2016 Dec 27.

Section of Dermatopathology,Dermatopathology, Division of Surgical Pathology & Cytopathology, University of Virginia Medical Center, Charlottesville, VA, USA. Electronic address:

The diagnosis of panniculitis is felt to be a confusing topic by some pathologists. This summarical article presents inflammatory diseases of the subcutis in a systematic fashion, based on whether they are centered on fibrovascular septa or the adipose lobules, and whether morphologic vasculitis is present or not. Septocentric, non-vasculitis disorders include erythema nodosum, panniculitis that follows the use of "biological" therapeutic agents, lipodermatosclerosis, post-irradiation panniculitis, morphea profunda, and necrobiosis lipodica profunda.

Panniculitis with crystals induced by etanercept subcutaneous injection.

J Cutan Pathol 2015 Jun 1;42(6):413-5. Epub 2015 Apr 1.

Department of Dermatology, Fundación Jiménez Diaz, Universidad Autónoma, Madrid, Spain.

Panniculitis with lipid crystallization within adipocytes may be seen in several disorders, including crystal-storing histiocytosis, gouty panniculitis, subcutaneous fat necrosis of the newborn, post-steroid panniculitis, sclerema neonatorum, oxalosis and subcutaneous fungal infections by mucormycosis, zygomycosis or aspergillosis. Panniculitis at the sites of subcutaneous injection of drugs are frequent, but to our knowledge no crystals have been described in the drug-induced panniculitis at the sites of subcutaneous injections. We report on a patient who developed a panniculitis with lipid crystallization at the site of etanercept injection. Read More

The panniculitides include a group of disorders of varied etiology that manifest as inflamed nodules in the subcutaneous tissue. They are rarely seen in infants and children. The panniculitides of the newborn represent a unique response of the infant's fat to different injuries, and are a specific type of panniculitis that is only seen in neonates and very young infants.

Department of Dermatology, Fundación Jiménez Díaz, Universidad Autónoma, Madrid, Spain.

The panniculitides represent a group of heterogeneous inflammatory diseases that involve the subcutaneous fat. The specific diagnosis of these diseases requires histopathologic study because different panniculitides usually show the same clinical appearance, which consists of erythematous nodules on the lower extremities. However, the histopathologic study of panniculitis is difficult because of an inadequate clinicopathologic correlation and the changing evolutive nature of the lesions. Read More

In contrast with the full-term infant, the skin of the preterm neonate is structurally and functionally immature, especially birth occurred before 30 weeks gestation. The inefficiency of the epidermal barrier may result in dehydration, thermal instability and toxic reactions from percutaneous absorption of topically applied agents. An increased risk for bacteremia and sepsis exist because of the easily injured skin, combined with compromised immunity. Read More

Panniculitis is an inflammation of subcutaneous fat responsible for fairly uniform clinical features including nodules, plaques or swelling located in the subcutaneous tissue, occasionally progressing to atrophy of subcutaneous fat. Some forms of panniculitis specific of childhood are responsible for readily recognizable clinical patterns. Examples include acute neonatal fat necrosis, sclerema neonatorum, cryopanniculitis, steroid-induced panniculitis, and toxoplasmosis-related multinodular fat necrosis of Royer syndrome. Read More
