Erythema nodosum is a type of septal panniculitis. We report a case of 40 year old male of chronic and recalcitrant erythema nodosum who responded to tetracycline. The possible mechanism of action of tetracycline is analyzed. Tetracycline should be considered as a logical option in recalcitrant erythema nodosum.
