The panniculitides include a group of disorders of varied etiology that manifest as inflamed nodules in the subcutaneous tissue. They are rarely seen in infants and children. The panniculitides of the newborn represent a unique response of the infant's fat to different injuries, and are a specific type of panniculitis that is only seen in neonates and very young infants. These specific panniculitides of children include subcutaneous fat of the newborn, poststeroid panniculitis, sclerema neonatorum, and cold panniculitis. This article reviews in detail the specific types of panniculitis of the newborn and discusses the pediatric aspects of the panniculitis that is often seen in adults.
