Eosinophilic fasciitis is a rare disorder which can markedly affect the quality of life in individual patients. So far, no generally accepted and effective treatment modality has been available. Although the precise nature of eosinophilic fasciitis is still unknown, it is often regarded as a variant of localized scleroderma (morphoea). Phototherapy and photochemotherapy have been shown to be effective in the treatment of sclerodermatous skin lesions. We report a patient with eosinophilic fasciitis which was successfully treated with psoralen plus ultraviolet A bath photochemotherapy within 6 months.
