Finger stiffness or edema as presenting symptoms of eosinophilic fasciitis.

 

Finger symptoms of patients with EF might be caused by fasciitis of the forearms, which leads to dysfunction of the long finger flexors and extensors as well as slight edema of hands. PubMed, Rheumatol Int, 08/07/2015. (Also see Eosinophilic Fasciitis)
