• Eosinophilic fasciitis (EF) is an acute, idiopathic inflammatory disorder often manifested by tender swelling of the extremities after extreme physical exertion. It is usually without visceral complications. I treated a 25-year-old man with EF who had reactive hepatitis and splenomegaly. To my knowledge, the former has never been reported and the latter only once.
