ABSTRACT
Eosinophilic fasciitis (EF), also known as Shulman syndrome, is an inflammatory disorder of unknown etiology. It usually presents with pain, swelling, and tenderness of the proximal aspect of the limbs, chest, or neck, with subsequent induration of the skin and subcutaneous tissues, in association with peripheral eosinophilia. EF is differentiated from scleroderma by the pattern of skin involvement and non-involvement of muscle. We report a case of progressive EF presented with tightness and stiffness in all limbs.
Key words: Eosinophilia, Fasciitis, Stiffness
