About this section

NIH Rare Diseases:42 Eosinophilic fasciitis is a very rare condition in which muscle tissue underneath the skin, called fascia, becomes swollen and thick. rapid swelling can occur in the hands, arms, legs, and feet. people with this condition have a buildup of eosinophils, a type of white blood cell, in the affected fascia and muscles. the exact cause of this condition is unknown. fewer than 300 cases have been reported in the past 35 years. eosinophilic fasciitis is similar in appearance to scleroderma but is not related. last updated: 11/1/2011

MalaCards based summary: Eosinophilic Fasciitis, also known as shulman syndrome, is related to eosinophilia-myalgia syndrome and eosinophilia, and has symptoms including cellulitis/panniculitis/pseudocellulitis/inflammation of subcutaneous tissue, macules and cutaneous edema. An important gene associated with Eosinophilic Fasciitis is IL5 (interleukin 5 (colony-stimulating factor, eosinophil)), and among its related pathways are Regulation of nuclear SMAD2/3 signaling and IL4-mediated signaling events. The compounds mcp 1 and praziquantel have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include skin, bone and t cells, and related mouse phenotypes are renal/urinary system and reproductive system.
