Wells' syndrome: a clinical and histopathologic review of seven cases

International Journal of Dermatology
Meena Moossavi, Darius R Mehregan

Abstract

Wells' syndrome, or eosinophilic cellulitis, is characterized clinically by an acute dermatitis resembling cellulitis, which evolves into violaceous plaques that resolve spontaneously without scarring. The histopathologic features are dynamic, starting with dermal edema and infiltration of eosinophils, the development of "flame figures," and finishing with the appearance of phagocytic histiocytes. We present the clinical and histopathologic features of seven cases of eosinophilic cellulitis.
