Eosinophilic fasciitis is characterized by peripheral eosinophilia, diffuse induration of the skin (particularly of the extremities), thickened fascia, and responsiveness to corticosteroids. Since it was first described in 1974, 36 cases have been reported. We have presented three new cases diagnosed in our community hospital during the last 27 months, with reports on their follow-up while being treated with corticosteroids. We believe the disorder to be more common than reports indicate.
