MORITA, Thâmara Cristiane Alves Batista et al. Panniculitides of particular interest to the rheumatologist. Adv. rheumatol. [online]. 2019, vol.59, 35.  Epub Aug 12, 2019. ISSN 2523-3106.

The panniculitides remain as one of the most challenging areas for clinicians, as they comprise a heterogeneous group of inflammatory diseases involving the subcutaneous fat with potentially-shared clinical and histopathological features. Clinically, most panniculitides present as red edematous nodules or plaques. Therefore, in addition to a detailed clinical history, a large scalpel biopsy of a recent-stage lesion with adequate representation of the subcutaneous tissue is essential to specific diagnosis and appropriate clinical management. Herein we review the panniculitides of particular interest to the rheumatologist.
