ERYTHEMA NODOSUM

Septal panniculitis characterized by erythematous, warm, tender subcutaneous nodular lesions typically over anterior tibia. Lesions are usually flush with skin surface but are indurated and have appearance of an erythematous/violaceous bruise. Lesions usually resolve spontaneously in 3–6 weeks without scarring. Commonly seen in sarcoidosis, administration of certain drugs (esp. sulfonamides, oral contraceptives, and estrogens), and a wide range of infections including streptococcal and tubercular; may be idiopathic.

Treatment

Identification and treatment/removal of underlying cause. NSAIDs for severe or recurrent lesions; systemic glucocorticoids are effective but dangerous if underlying infection is not appreciated.
