Abstract/OtherAbstract:
  Lupus erythematosus panniculitis (LEP) is a rare finding in children, with only 12 fully reported prior cases in the English literature. We describe three cases of LEP in children younger than 18 and compare them to previous cases reported in the literature. We examine laboratory tests performed, biopsy results, age at onset and diagnosis, presence or absence of systemic symptoms, and outcomes after treatment. It is unknown what the risk is of these patients developing future systemic lupus erythematosus. We also discuss the relevance of subcutaneous panniculitis-like T-cell lymphoma, because the clinical and pathologic pictures are similar in presentation.
