Resolution of panniculitis after placement of pancreatic duct stent in chronic pancreatitis

Am J Gastroenterol. 1996 Sep;91(9):1835-7.


The association of panniculitis and pancreatitis is well described. However, panniculitis remains a relatively uncommon manifestation of pancreatic inflammation. We report a case in which treatment of pancreatitis by the placement of a pancreatic stent led to simultaneous resolution of both the pancreatitis and the associated panniculitis. There are no other reports in the literature demonstrating resolution of panniculitis subsequent to stent placement or definitive surgery.
