Subcutaneous panniculitis-like T-cell lymphoma is a distinct variant of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, characterized by primary involvement of the subcutaneous fat in a manner mimicking panniculitis. It accounts for less than one percent of all non Hodgkin lymphoma. We describe two such patients who presented with cutaneous nodules. A 28 year old male presented with a one and a half month history of multiple subcutaneous nodules over the thighs, abdominal wall and chest. A clinical diagnosis of panniculitis was made. An excision biopsy of one the nodules was performed and the histopathology revealed subcutaneous panniculitis-like T-cell lymphoma. The other patient was a 44 year old male who underwent excision of a subcutaneous mass in the right thigh and on histopathological examination a diagnosis of subcutaneous panniculitis-like T-cell lymphoma was made. The patients received one cycle of CHOP (cyclophoshamide, vincristine, doxorubicin and prednisolone) regimen, followed by systemic steroids and were advised follow up.
