Abstract

A 37-year-old woman presented with recurrent erythema nodosum-like lesions on her arms and legs that were preceded by chronic recurrent parotitis. Microscopic examination revealed a mixed lobular and septal panniculitis with many eosinophils and multiple eosinophilic flame figures similar to those seen in Wells' syndrome. The dermis was not involved. The classification, differential diagnosis, and possible pathomechanisms of eosinophilic panniculitis are discussed.
