A 40-year-old woman who had been treated for mesangiocapillary glomerulonephritis by renal transplantation, and who still used furosemide, azathioprine, cyclosporine and prednisone, was admitted with multiple erythematous nodes on the lower legs. Pancreatogenic panniculitis caused by pancreatitis was diagnosed. The patient died with a haemorrhagic and necrotic pancreas one month after admission. Pancreatogenic panniculitis occurs in 2-3% of patients with pancreatitis or pancreatic carcinoma. It can be a first manifestation of an undetected pancreatic disease.
