Radiological features of a rare case of pancreatic panniculitis presenting in bilateral lower extremities

Free full text article: Radiological features of a rare case of pancreatic panniculitis presenting in bilateral lower extremities

Abstract
Pancreatic panniculitis is a rare cutaneous presentation in patients with pancreatic pathology. While it presents as cutaneous inflammation with painful and erythematous nodules which demonstrate ulceration, imaging features of this pathology are seldom described. The common sites of involvement are the extremities. It demonstrates characteristic histological features of lobular panniculitis with ghost cells. MR imaging with its excellent soft tissue contrast can be helpful in confirming the diagnosis, demonstrating imaging features of fat necrosis with surrounding inflammation as demonstrated in our patient.
