Relapsing, febrile, nodular, nonsuppurative panniculitis is a title that defines a disease, which is characterized by recurrent episodes of fever ranging as high as 104° F., and by the formation of single to multiple crops of tender or painless, freely movable, inflammatory and necrotic nodules in the panniculus adiposus. The nodules do not produce pus and may regress in a few days or weeks, either leaving a shallow dimple in the skin or showing no superficial evidence of their site. The nodules range from about 0.5 to 3 cm. in diameter. The overlying skin may be normal in color
