Abstract

We report on a 45-year-old female who developed eosinophilic fasciitis, characterized by scleroderma-like skin indurations, predominantly on the extremities and chest, with joint contractures and intermittent blood eosinophilia. Histologic examination revealed fibrosis of muscle fascia and eosinophilic infiltration. High-dose systemic corticosteroid therapy was ineffective, but cyclosporine treatment led to remission.
