Bazin disease (or "Erythema induratum") is a panniculitis on the back of the calves.[1]

It was formerly thought to be a reaction to the tuberculum bacillus. It is now considered a panniculitis that is not associated with a single defined pathogen.[2]

It occurs mainly in women, but is very rare now.


It is named for Pierre-Antoine-Ernest Bazin.[3][4]
