MalaCards: Eosinophilia-Myalgia Syndrome, also known as syndrome with inflammatory and autoimmune components that affect the skin, fascia, muscle, nerve, blood vessels, lung, and heart, is related to eosinophilia and eosinophilic fasciitis. An important gene associated with Eosinophilia-Myalgia Syndrome is IL5 (interleukin 5 (colony-stimulating factor, eosinophil)), and among its related pathways are Hematopoietic cell lineage and Calcineurin-regulated NFAT-dependent transcription in lymphocytes. The compounds toluene diisocyanate and dpa 1 have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include skin, heart and lung.
