Infection and panniculitis

Abstract: Infection-induced panniculitis may result from a number of microbes including bacteria, fungi, and parasites. Viruses have also been implicated as a cause. This type of panniculitis can occur as a primary infection by direct inoculation of infectious microorganisms into the subcutaneous tissue, or secondarily via microbial hematogenous dissemination with subsequent infection of the subcutaneous tissue. Panniculitis is rarely viewed solely in terms of infectious causes. Also, subcutaneous infections are infrequ… Show more

“…However, bacterial panniculitis manifests as suppurative panniculitis, whereas granulomatous patterns are mostly reported with Mycobacterium species, fungi, and parasites. 15 The overall systemic immunocompetent status of the 6 reported cases could explain the locoregional limitation of the infectious process. The general systemic predisposing factors appear to be advanced age, type 1 or 2 diabetes mellitus, chronic heart disease, and overweight.…”

“…As a possible complication of the proposed photonic fat reduction technique, we may expect some inflammation reaction such as panniculitis that is a progressive lesion of subcutaneous fat tissue of inflammatory nature . However, usually it has an infectious origin, leading to the destruction of fat cells and their replacement by a connective tissue with the formation of nodes, plaques or infiltrates and is accompanied by further damage to the superficial skin layers.…”

“…Other locations of involvement are possible such as the upper extremities, the gluteal region and the abdominal wall. However, the clinical picture can vary from infiltrated nodules with discharge or not to necrotizing ulcers depending on the organism involved, the route of infection, the host immune response, and the duration of the lesion at the time of biopsy [72,73].…”

“…When it comes to fungal infections that involve the subcutaneous fat, they can be divided into two major types: (1) panniculitis in the setting of a disseminated fungal infection and (2) classical subcutaneous mycosis (with the most important being mycetoma, chromoblastomycosis, and sporotrichosis), introduced into the subcutaneous tissue from the environment via inoculation. Cytomegalovirus has been rarely reported as a causative agent; immunocompromised patients were particularly affected, as in most of these IP [72,73]. Similarly, there has been sporadic reports on parasitic organisms (Leishmania spp.…”
