Sclerosing lipogranuloma is a granulomatous reaction to the injection of a high-viscosity fluid in the tissues for the cosmetic purpose of improving body contour; lesions on the extremities and buttocks are commonly the results of injections of therapeutic agents in oily vehicles. Exenatide, once-weekly injection, is a therapeutic method for patients with type 2 diabetes. Here, we describe a case of exenatide once weekly induced eosinophilic sclerosing lipogranuloma at the injection site of a 62-year-old patient. To the best of our knowledge, the histopathologic features of this adverse event have not been reported in the medical literature.
