ABSTRACT:: Poststeroid panniculitis is a rare disorder usually reported in children after a sudden decrease or withdrawal of corticosteroid therapy. We report a case in an adult, a finding very rarely reported in English literature. The case report is about a 34-year-old man with multiple erythematous, firm and tender subcutaneous nodules on both thighs and legs after the withdrawal of long-term doses of dexamethasone prescribed before and after surgery for a frontoinsular anaplastic oligodendroglioma. Histopathologic study revealed mainly lobular and also septal panniculitis with fat necrosis and characteristic needle-shaped clefts in radial arrangement within fat cells and multinucleated giant cells. The lesions resolved in about 5 months, after weight loss and application of topical corticosteroids for 1 month, leaving only residual hyperpigmentation.
