Poststeroid panniculitis is a rare complication of corticosteroid therapy. All reported cases have occurred in children. In this communication, we describe a 41-year-old woman who presented to us with multiple subcutaneous nodules which appeared after reduction of the dose of oral prednisolone administered for systemic lupus erythematosus. Histopathological examination confirmed the diagnosis of poststeroid panniculitis. To our knowledge, this is the first case report in which poststeroid panniculitis occurs in an adult.
