Australas J Dermatol. 2000 Aug;41(3):187-9. doi: 10.1046/j.1440-0960.2000.00428.x.

Abstract

An 83-year-old Cambodian woman presented with multiple painful erythematous nodules on the lower legs, forearms and wrists. Subsequent history and investigations revealed a granulomatous lobular panniculitis associated with Sjögren's syndrome. This is a rare cutaneous association of Sjögrens syndrome with only three similar case reports in the literature.
