Abstract

Fat necrosis (FN) is an uncommon etiology of panniculitis. It is mainly caused by trauma and may be associated to other conditions such as pancreatic disease. We report an interesting case of subcutaneous FN caused by intramuscular injections of cefazolin and meglumine antimoniate in a 38-year-old female patient.
