High synovial immunoglobulin E levels in eosinophilic synovitis.


Eosinophilic synovitis occurred in a 7-year-old boy. Synovial fluid leukocytes were mostly eosinophils; the peripheral blood showed only mild eosinophilia. The level of eosinophil-derived neurotoxin in the synovial fluid was higher than that in the serum, suggesting intraarticular eosinophil degranulation.
