Abstract

Subcutaneous fat necrosis associated with pancreatitis has been postulated to be due to the effects of circulating pancreatic lipase. We report positive intracellular staining of adipocytes with a monoclonal antibody to pancreatic lipase in a lesion of subcutaneous pancreatic fat necrosis, and confirm the role of pancreatic lipase in the pathogenesis of this syndrome.
