Panniculitis in cystic fibrosis patient 

I am a pediatrician involved in Cystic Fibrosis care. I was recently reported of a patient with panniculitis (Weber-Christian disease) and pancreatic pathology suggesting Cystic Fibrosis. Panniculitis may occur as a complication of pancreatic disease. I wonder if any other has experience of panniculitis occurring in CF or of panniculitis associated to pancreatic
changes suggesting CF.

Many thanks
