Eosinophilic fasciitis ( /ˌiː.ɵsɪnɵˈfiːlɪk ˌfæʃiˈaɪtɪs/), also known as "Shulman's syndrome", is a form of fasciitis. It is distinguished from scleroderma primarily because the affected area is the fascia, not the dermis as in scleroderma. Also, unlike scleroderma, Raynaud's phenomenon and telangiectasia are not observed.
It was first characterized in 1974, and it is not yet known whether it is actually a distinct condition or just a different presentation. However, it remains used for diagnostic purposes.
Several cases have been reported after strenuous exercise.
