Eosinophilic Fasciitis (Shulman’s Syndrome) Definition

Eosinophilic fasciitis (Shulman’s syndrome) is a condition in which the muscle tissue underneath the skin becomes swollen and thick. People with eosinophilic fasciitis have a build up of eosinophils—a type of white blood cell—in the affected tissue. Some patients also develop arthritis.
