Lobular Panniculitis due to Borrelia burgdorferi infection mimicking subcutaneous panniculitis-like T-Cell Lymphoma


Kempf, Werner; Kazakov, Dmitry V; Kutzner, Heinz (2013). Lobular Panniculitis due to Borrelia burgdorferi infection mimicking subcutaneous panniculitis-like T-Cell Lymphoma. American Journal of Dermatopathology, 35(2):e30-3.

Abstract

ABSTRACT:: The authors present an unusual case of lobular panniculitis caused by Borrelia burgdorferi senso latu infection in a 56-year-old man. It presented clinically as a solitary subcutaneous nodule. Histopathologically, the lesion resembled subcutaneous panniculitis-like T-cell lymphoma by manifesting atypically appearing lymphocytes with cytotoxic phenotype. B. burgdorferi etiology was proven by positive polymerase chain reaction and serology and positive response to antibiotics.
