Poststeroid panniculitis is a very rare complication of corticosteroid therapy, and this is characterized by firm subcutaneous nodules on the cheek, neck or upper trunk within days or weeks following rapid systemic steroid tapering or cessation in childhood. It can be identified by the clinical features and a history of using steroid, and if necessary, with a biopsy. There have been just 2 reported cases in adulthood, one was an autopsy case of a 28-year woman and another was a 60-year-old man after massive administration of corticosteroids for congestive heart failure. Herein, we report a case of panniculitis accompanied by Cushing's syndrome in an adult after long-term misuse of systemic steroid for rosacea.
