We report a case of subcutaneous panniculitis-like T-cell lymphoma in an 84-year old woman admitted to the geriatric ward presenting with fever, loss of appetite and indurated lesions on the legs. Time from admission to diagnosis was seven weeks. Time from onset of first symptoms to diagnosis was four months. She was treated with systemic steroids with a good clinical response.
