Relapsing febrile nodular non-suppurative panniculitis is an uncommon disease of unknown etiology. In a review article Beerman1 found 83 reported cases. No review of the literature is here included, as this has been done recently.2, 3 Our case is reported because it showed that, although cortisone apparently caused the disappearance of fever, it did not prevent the appearance of new lesions. Furthermore, one area was selected for radiation therapy and this area healed while surrounding areas did not. Then all available areas were treated by x-ray, with prompt disappearance of the lesions, disappearance of fever, and a return of blood
