Answer

Eosinophilia-myalgia syndrome and toxic oil syndrome are two disorders that share common clinical and histopathological features with eosinophilic fasciitis, including peripheral eosinophilia. In contrast to eosinophilic fasciitis, these two conditions present in epidemic form and, after epidemiological analysis, appear to be almost universally toxin-associated. [40, 41]
