Abstract

Eosinophilic fasciitis is an uncommon disorder of unknown aetiology and poorly-understood pathogenesis. Since 1974, over 250 cases of eosinophilic fasciitis have been reported worldwide. The first case  of eosinophilic fasciitis from Bangladesh is reported here. The challenges of diagnosis, treatment, and  follow-up, including family and social support, are discussed.
