Weber-Christian Disease (WCD), also known as relapsing febrile lobular non-suppurative panniculitis, is a rare condition characterized by recurrent subcutaneous inflammatory nodules in the adipose tissue in addition to fever, malaise and other systemic manifestations such as polyarthralgia and polymyalgia. The association with small vessel vasculitis has been rarely reported. We report here an unusual case of WCD associated with small vessels vasculitis also describing the efficacy of Cyclosporin A treatment

Abstract

Weber-Christian Disease (WCD), also known as relapsing febrile lobular non-suppurative panniculitis, is a rare condition characterized by recurrent subcutaneous inflammatory nodules in the adipose tissue in addition to fever, malaise and other systemic manifestations such as polyarthralgia and polymyalgia. The association with small vessel vasculitis has been rarely reported. We report here an unusual case of WCD associated with small vessels vasculitis also describing the efficacy of Cyclosporin A treatment
