Abstract

Abstract: Eosinophilic pannicuiitis is a pooriy defined entity with variabie ciinicai features. We report a case of rapidiy eniarging, asymptomatic subcutaneous scalp nodules in a 6‐year‐old biack boy with atopic dermatitis. The noduies resolved spontaneously over two to three days. Biopsy specimens were remarkable for eosinophilic pannicuiitis without evidence of epidermal change or vasculltis. We beiieve that this is the youngest reported patient with this disorder.
