Abstract: A 39 year old male, chronic alcoholic and known case of chronic Pancreatitis for past 6 years presented with pain and multiple swellings of bilateral lowerlimb and pain over knee joints of 1month duration. Biopsy from the lesion showed lobular panniculitis with dermal infiltration of lymphocytes and neutrophils. Visible superficial fat lobules infiltrated with macrophage and lymphocyte.
