Abstract

Eosinophilic fasciitis is an uncommon entity characterized by peripheral eosinophilia and fasciitis. To our knowledge, approximately 30 pediatric patients have been reported. We describe a 12-year-old girl with eosinophilic fasciitis. The patient received interdisciplinary treatment including methotrexate, systemic steroids, and physical therapy with progressive improvement. Her presentation provides more evidence of a potential phenotype of this disease specific to childhood eosinophilic fasciitis.
