Abstract

A 56-year-old woman receiving Depixol injections for schizophrenia presented with two separate episodes of breast fat necrosis with no identifiable cause. It is postulated that the fat necrosis could be as of a result of the Depixol injections, where this drug is taken up into the breast fat and subsequently rapidly hydrolysed resulting in fat necrosis.
