We read with great interest in the Archives “A Complication of Mesotherapy: Noninfectious Granulomatous Panniculitis” by Davis and colleagues,1 which describes the morbid outcome of a woman injected with a deoxycholate-containing solution for the treatment of cellulite. The patient was diagnosed with a “mesotherapy-induced noninfectious granulomatous panniculitis”1(p809) in tissue obtained from numerous violaceous nodules and erosions on her thighs, buttocks, knees, and lower legs.
