Eosinophilic Fasciitis With a Malignant Outcome

Salman Ansari, Umair Iftikhar, Asma Jamil, Aamir Ansari, Syed Iftikhar

Abstract


Eosinophilic fasciitis (EF) is an uncommon localized fibrosing disorder affecting the fascial layers of the human body. To date less than 300 cases of EF have been reported worldwide. Due to the limited prevalence, extensive studying of its pathogenesis and treatment has not yet been established. Furthermore, little is known regarding the long-term prognosis and comorbidities associated with EF. In this case study, we discuss a 72-year-old female patient who was diagnosed with EF and subsequently developed squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the skin in areas of previously exposed EF. This case represents the first reported case of SCC of the skin in a patient with previously active EF in the same area of skin.
