Mesotherapy was first introduced in France by Pistor in 1952. This is a widely used technique of intradermal or subcutaneous microinjections of a highly diluted drug, or cocktail of drugs. The use of mesotherapy is commonplace in medicine, especially in painful disorders of the locomotory apparatus. The technique has also been employed in cutaneous affections and esthetical conditions such as keloids and hypertrophic scars, acne, psoriasis, vitiligo, wrinkles, alopecia areata and hair loss, cellulitis, lipodystrophy, obesity, telangiectasias, lymphedemas, peripheral vascular diseases, and leg ulcers. A 24-year-old woman presented with painful eczematous subcutaneous nodules located at the points where mesotherapy had been applied. Histologically, it showed panniculitis with acute inflammation, aggregation of neutrophils, and fat necrosis. We report an unusual case of panniculitis after mesotherapy.
