What is Panniculitis ?

Panniculitis is a term used to describe a group of disorders that result in inflammation of the fat beneath the skin. Even though the causes of panniculitis are diverse, all forms show similar symptoms. A skin biopsy is done to diagnose the condition.

Types of panniculitis

It is difficult to classify the different types of panniculitis, but most forms are generally classified as mostly lobular or mostly septal panniculitis and are dependent on the location and concentration of the microscopic skin inflammation. In addition, the presence of inflammation in the blood vessels of the affected fat, also determine the classification.
