Definition time: Panniculitis

Definition time!

Panniculitis can be caused by a number of things including: trauma, foreign bodies, infectious organisms, pancreatic disease, Vitamin E deficiency, adverse drug reactions, immune mediated disease, and idiopathic.

This photo is an example of panniculitis caused by a vaccine hypersensitivity reaction!
