Poststeroid panniculitis (PSP) is a very rare form of lobular panniculitis that occurs due to rapid tapering of long-term corticosteroid therapy. Herein, we present a case of a 2-year-old boy with PSP following discontinuation of oral prednisolone administered for the treatment of West syndrome. Histopathology revealed lobular panniculitis along with the characteristic needle-shaped clefts. Through this case report, we want to highlight the importance of gradual tapering of steroids and discuss important differential diagnoses with such a case scenario.
