Does Eosinophillic fasciitis increase mortality?

2 posts in this topic

Has anyone had Eosinophilic Fasciitis (EF) for a long time or been made aware of any data or trials looking at long term mortality or increased co-morbid illnesses associated with its presence?

 

Any feedback is greatly appreciated!

We have a section on Eosinophillic Fasciitis on our main site, including a selection of patient stories.

 

One of the articles there points out that, "Eosinophilic fasciitis does not always have a good prognosis. Ventilatory restriction, perimyositis and poor treatment response are not infrequent in a series of patients attended in a general hospital."
