Subcutaneous Panniculitis-Like T-Cell Lymphoma

"Bean-bag histiocytes" are large phagocytic histiocytes containing cell debris or red blood cells.


Cytophagic histiocytic panniculitis is a rare disease which is characterized by infiltration of subcutaneous adipose tissue by benign-appearing T - lymphocytes and phagocytic histiocytes ("bean bag cells").

Cytophagic histiocytic panniculitis may be an isolated skin disease or associated with non-malignant conditions, such as infections, as well as malignancies, including subcutaneous panniculitis-like T-cell lymphoma.
