Summaries for Eosinophilic Fasciitis

About this section
NIH Rare Diseases:47 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. Corticosteroids and other immune-suppressing medications are used to relieve the symptoms. Eosinophilic fasciitis is similar in appearance to scleroderma but is not related. Last updated: 11/12/2015

MalaCards based summary: Eosinophilic Fasciitis, also known as shulman syndrome, is related to fasciitis and fetal erythroblastosis, and has symptoms including hypermelanotic macule, acrocyanosis and myalgia. An important gene associated with Eosinophilic Fasciitis is AHR (Aryl Hydrocarbon Receptor), and among its related pathways are G-protein signaling_RhoB regulation pathway and Glucocorticoid receptor regulatory network. Affiliated tissues include skin, bone and thyroid, and related mouse phenotypes are neoplasm and reproductive system.
