Eosinophilic Fasciitis Presenting as an Ichthyosiform Eruption of the Bilateral Ankles.
Case Reports in Dermatology
Eosinophilic fasciitis (EF) is a rare connective tissue disease which closely resembles other scleroderma-like diseases. EF presents with painful swelling and hardening of the distal limbs and is often preceded by a history of strenuous exercise. The marked fascial fibrosis in EF can lead to joint contractures and causes significant morbidity in affected individuals. The authors present a rare case of EF presenting as an ichthyosiform eruption of the bilateral ankles with gradual improvement after the implementation of oral prednisone, hydroxychloroquine, and methotrexate.
