Fasciitis (not scleroderma) following prolonged exposure to an organic solvent (trichloroethylene).
We describe 2 cases of diffuse fasciitis with eosinophilia (DFE) associated with prolonged exposure to the industrial solvent trichloroethylene (TCE).
The medical and personal histories, examinations, and laboratory and pathological investigations were reviewed and summarized.
The 2 case reports, representing the first and 2nd cases of DFE associated with TCE, were compared with 8 reported cases of systemic sclerosis associated with TCE and suggest a direct association between TCE exposure and the development of fasciitis (DFE).
