The accumulation of eosinophils in the gastrointestinal tract is a common feature of numerous disorders, such as drug reactions, helminth infections, hypereosinophilic syndromes, allergic colitis, inflammatory bowel disease, and gastrooesophageal reflux disease.
A subset of these diseases, referred to as primary eosinophil-associated gastrointestinal disorders (EGID), includes eosinophilic esophagitis (EE), eosinophilic gastritis, and eosinophilic gastroenteritis. This review will focus on Eosinophilic Gastroenteritis (EG).
