    Eosinophilic panniculitis is characterized by a prominent infiltration of numerous eosinophlis in the subcutaneous fat, and has been identified in patients with a variety of associated clinical conditions, including arthropod bites, parasitic infections, vasculitis, atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, Wells syndrome, bacterial infection, and injection reactions. We experienced a case of eosinophilic panniculitis in a 40-year-old woman who had developed multiple pruritic tender erythematous subcutaneous nodules on her abdomen and legs associated with pleural effusion and respiratory distress symptoms because of pulmonary paragonimiasis.
