Eosinophilic panniculitis is characterized by a mixed type inflammatory cell infiltration, predominantly with eosinophils, in subcutaneous tissue. Gnathostomiasis (Larva migrans profondus), leucocytoclastic vasculitis and erythema nodosum are implicated as the most common etiologic causes. In this case report, we present an idiopathic eosinophilic panniculitis with full response to Dapsone therapy, which had not responded to corticosteroids, and literature data were reviewed.
