A case of liquefying nodular panniculitis has been reported. It is our feeling that Weber-Christian disease, lipogranulomatosis subcutanea, and liquefying nodular panniculitis are varying expressions of a single disease entity. We suggest that the term "relapsing nodular panniculitis" is an appropriate one to cover these several expressions of fat involvement.
