Introduction Eosinophilic gastroenteritis is a rare inflammatory disease characterized by eosinophilic infiltration in the gastrointestinal tract affecting all age and ethnic groups [ 1 ]. Complications such as obstruction, perforation, suspicion of cancer and refractoriness to drugs are an indication for surgical intervention [ 119 ].

Lancet ; This allows antigens to cross the mucosa, thus inducing degranulation of mast cells, which release chemotactic factors that recruit eosinophils. In general, patients can be successfully treated with corticosteroids, but relapses are common. An increase in immunoglobulin E levels may also be associated [ 41112 ]. Its association with an infestation by Ancylostoma caninum is more evident.

The latter two conditions tend to be more commonly associated with ileum disease, causing pain in the lower right quadrant of the abdomen. Unusual presentations of eosinophilic gastroenteritis: Mesalamina, azathioprine and cromoglycate have been successfully used in the treatment of intestinal obstruction caused by eosinophilic enteritis.


In the more advanced stages, the malabsorption syndrome may be observed, which can be confirmed by changes in the D-xylose test. In some occasions, eosino-philia develops after surgery. The aim is to wosinofilica the quality of life of affected individuals, considering that the incidence of eosinophilic gastroenteritis has increased over the last decade [ 11 ].

Although peripheral blood eosinophilia can seemingly be important eosinofiliac the diagnosis of this condition, eisinofilica frequently does not develop, or may develop only after surgery. Diagnostic laparoscopy may show a thickened intestine with or without mesenteric adenopathies 20and eventually intestinal biopsy can be taken as described by Edelman 21, Am Surg, 66pp.
