Eosinophilic fasciitis (EF), a rare rheumatic disease, usually affects the limbs symmetrically and generally spares the hands and feet. Cases of unilateral hand involvement are rarely reported. Here, we report such a rare case. Ultrasonography demonstrated thickening of the overlying skin and subcutaneous tissue, peripheral deep fascia, myositis of lumbrical muscles and adductor pollicis muscle, and edema surrounding flexor digitorum tendons. It reminds us that EF should be considered in the differential diagnosis of unilateral painful hand swelling despite being uncommon...

BACKGROUND: Eosinophilic fasciitis (EF) is a rare disease characterized by scleroderma-like skin, inflammation of deep muscle fascia, hypergammaglobulinemia, peripheral eosinophilia, and elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate. OBJECTIVES: To present our experience in diagnosis and treatment of seven biopsy-proven EF patients in a large tertiary medical center. METHODS: We screened all patients who were admitted to our tertiary medical center and diagnosed with EF by tissue biopsies from January 2000 to January 2016...

In this small case series, all eight patients were women in their fifth and sixth decades. This is similar to the female predominance in morphoea and less in keeping with eosinophilic fasciitis (EF). All cases had diffuse induration of their limbs with both proximal and distal patterns of distribution, and five of the patients exhibited peau d'orange skin. All patients had diffuse induration of the lower limbs and half had restricted ankle movements. Six patients had concomitant superficial morphoea. This group of patients demonstrated a unique subtype of the morphoea spectrum with some features overlapping with EF...

The authors describe the case of a 23-year-old woman who was referred to the rheumatologist due to symmetrical and progressive stiffness, induration, and swelling of arms and thighs at the 12th week of her first gestation. The characteristic clinical aspect of 'peau d'orange', associated to the histopathologic results of the deep biopsy of the skin confirmed the diagnosis of eosinophilic fasciitis. Treatment with oral prednisone, at an initial dose of 1 mg/kg/day, was effective and rapidly tapered to 10 mg/day till the birth of a healthy newborn...

We established diagnostic criteria and severity classification of eosinophilic fasciitis because there is no established diagnostic criteria or widely accepted severity classification of the disease. Also, there has been no clinical guideline for eosinophilic fasciitis, so we established its clinical guideline ahead of all over the world. In particular, the clinical guideline was established by clinical questions based on evidence-based medicine according to the New Minds Clinical Practice Guideline Creation Manual (version 1...

A 53-year-old male developed left knee and left ankle arthritis associated with marked induration of the skin and soft tissues distal to the knees. The left knee was swollen, tender, and with a non-reducible contracture and similarly the left ankle and the subtalar joint were stiff and moderately swollen. In addition, diffuse, bluish, small vascular ectasia, hypertrichosis and skin pigmentation of the affected sites were evident (fig1). These symptoms began 20 years before and the patient had been diagnosed with eosinophilic fasciitis and treated with daily prednisone leading to partial improvement of the symptoms, but not of the knee deformity and soft tissue induration...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: First recognized in 1974, eosinophilic fasciitis (EF) is a fibrosing disorder of the fascia with characteristic cutaneous and hematologic manifestations. This review discusses recent trends in the diagnosis and treatment of EF. RECENT FINDINGS: Although fascial biopsy has classically been considered the gold standard for making a diagnosis of EF, radiologic imaging, particularly magnetic resonance imaging, has been increasingly used for both diagnosis and monitoring of treatment response...

BACKGROUND: Eosinophilic fasciitis (EF) is a rare condition characterized by swelling of the extremities, sclerodermatous evolution and frequent hypereosinophilia. Hematological disorders, including aplastic anemia, solid tumors and autoimmune diseases, may be associated with EF. EF is usually not associated with granulomatous diseases. CASE REPORT: Herein we describe the case of an 80-year-old man with symmetrical swelling and sclerosis of the legs, typical of EF, associated with skin and lymph node granulomas...

INTRODUCTION: Eosinophilic fasciitis or Shulman's disease is characterized, in its typical form, by palpable thickening of the skin and soft tissues, blood hypereosinophilia and fascia lesions. We hereby report a case of eosinophilic fasciitis in which hypereosinophilia preceded for several months the clinical signs of fasciitis. CASE REPORT: A 64-year-old woman, with a history of Little's syndrome with motor disability, was admitted in internal medicine for eosinophilia...

BACKGROUND: Eosinophilic fasciitis (EF) and morphea profunda (MP) are inflammatory and sclerosing disorders of the subcutis that can exhibit clinical and pathologic presentations that overlap. OBJECTIVE: To identify clinicopathologic features that can be used to distinguish EF from MP. METHODS: We performed a retrospective review of 16 patients with EF and 11 patients with MP. Hematoxylin-eosin, CD123, CD34, and Verhoeff-Van Gieson stains were evaluated on skin biopsies that included the fascia...

BACKGROUND: Connective tissue nevus (CTN) is a rare condition of the extracellular matrix components that generally presents as papulae of normal skin colour. This condition may be syndromic or sporadic. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We report herein two isolated cases of extensive and infiltrative CTN in children at risk for subsequent joint stiffening. The pathology samples displayed respectively mixed hamartoma and a collagenoma. DISCUSSION: The onset of these lesions is often difficult to establish, since they are usually unnoticeable at first...

BACKGROUND: Eosinophilic fasciitis (EF) is a connective tissue disease with an unknown long-term course. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate presence and determinants of residual disease damage in patients with EF after long-term follow-up. METHODS: Patients with biopsy-proven EF were included for this cross-sectional study. Outcome measures included the Physician's Global Assessment of Disease Activity, Physician's Global Assessment of Damage (PhysGA-D), skin pliability scores, passive range of motion, and health-related quality of Life (HRQoL) questionnaires...

Scleroderma refers to an autoimmune connective tissue fibrosing disease, including three different subsets: localized scleroderma, limited cutaneous systemic sclerosis, and diffuse cutaneous systemic sclerosis with divergent patterns of organ involvement, autoantibody profiles, management, and prognostic implications. Although systemic sclerosis is considered the disease prototype that causes cutaneous sclerosis, there are many other conditions that can mimic and be confused with SSc. They can be classified into immune-mediated/inflammatory, immune-mediated/inflammatory with abnormal deposit (mucinoses), genetic, drug-induced and toxic, metabolic, panniculitis/vascular, and (para)neoplastic disorders according to clinico-pathological and pathogenetic correlations...

Scleroderma is a term used to describe diseases that involve hardening and tightening of the skin and the underlying subcutaneous connective tissue. It could be localized to skin and subcutaneous tissue, or may involve the internal organs too in systemic sclerosis. There are disorders that can cause hardening and tightening of skin and mimic scleroderma but are rarely associated with Raynaud phenomenon, sclerodactyly, and autoantibodies in the serum, features specific to scleroderma/systemic sclerosis. These are termed as "scleroderma variants" or "scleroderma like disorders"...
