Dermatologic Manifestations of Eosinophilic Fasciitis


Eosinophilic fasciitis is an idiopathic, fibrotic disorder with the histopathologic hallmark of fascial fibrosis. The presentation of eosinophilic fasciitis is acute with painful, swollen extremities progressing to disabling cutaneous fibrosis. Joint contractures, arthritis, neuropathy, and myositis may be associated with eosinophilic fasciitis. Many authors consider eosinophilic fasciitis to be a variant of morphea; others consider it a distinct entity.
