ABSTRACT: Lupus panniculitis is a rare disease characterized by deep subcutaneous tender nodules mostly on proximal part of limbs, face and breasts. The modules are usually subcutaneous in nature with Overlying skin either normal or it may show changes suggestive of discoid lupus erythematosus (DLE) and its consequences. Erythema, a cyanotic hue, ulceration, telangiectasia, atrophy and induration may occur in isolation or in varying combinations producing a poikilodermatous change. Lesions usually heal spontaneously with lipoatrophic depressed areas and hyperpigmentation of overlying skin.
