Abstract: A 3½‐year‐old girl had fever and nonsuppurative panniculitis. Biopsies revealed lobular lymphocytic panniculitis. An extensive evaluation of the patient for infectious and other systemic diseases yielded negative results. Although the number of peripheral T lymphocytes was normal, suppressor‐cytotoxic (0KT8) lymphocytes predominated in the subcutis of the lesions. Suppressor‐cytotoxic T‐lymphocyte panniculitis may represent a unique type of panniculitis.
