A 52 year old man developed progressive painful swelling of both calves and difficulty walking. Physical examination showed asymmetrical localised swelling with induration and tenderness on palpation. Peripheral blood eosinophilia was noted. Biopsy of deep fascia and muscle showed typical features of eosinophilic fasciitis. He was treated with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and intensive physiotherapy. The clinical features had completely resolved six months later.
