Abstract

Pancreatitis, panniculitis, and polyarthralgia (PPP) syndrome is a rare complication of chronic pancreatitis and occurs due to leakage of pancreatic enzymes in the systemic vasculature. This enzyme leakage leads to multiple manifestations such as polyarthralgia, panniculitis, and bone necrosis due to tissue autodigestion.The inciting pancreatic pathology may be masked, and the presentation may be due to one of the systemic consequences of enzyme leakage, which can present as a diagnostic challenge for clinicians. Here we present a patient who presented with nodular lesions and bone necrosis, and was found to have PPP syndrome. Therefore, a proper understanding of pathophysiology and radiology findings can help with prompt diagnosis and early exploration of management options.
