Two patients had an illness with clinical features of the syndrome of diffuse fasciitis with eosinophilia. The histologic findings in both patients showed granuloma formation in association with prominent vasculitis, in addition to other previously reported histologic features. The findings in these two cases raise the possibility that this syndrome should be classified with the vasculitides rather than as a variant of scleroderma.
