We report the case of a pediatric patient with eosinophilic fasciitis, who was successfully treated with early high dose corticosteroids and subsequent use of mycophenolate mofetil. We believe that the early institution of corticosteroids helped to suppress the early inflammatory part of the disease and the subsequent use of mycophenolate mofetil maintained this and may have also helped prevent fibrotic skin changes.
