Abstract

A 25 year old man presented with erythematous and indurated plaques on the upper and lower extremities that were preceded by insect bites while traveling in central Africa, The patient had a past history of Kimura's disease, asthma, and allergic rhinitis. Histologic examination revealed panniculitis showing massive eosinophilic infiltration. The dermis showed eosinophilic infiltration without flame figures, The patient responded well to oral corticosteroids, This patient did not fit the diagnosis of eosinophilic panniculitis, eosinophilic cellulitis, hypereosinophilic syndrome or, eosinophilic vasculitis.
