Unusual presentation of eosinophilic enteritis as multiple strictures of small intestine
AbstractEosinophilic enteritis is a rare disease of unknown etiology. It is characterized by eosinophilic infiltration of the bowel wall to a variable depth and symptoms associated with gastrointestinal tract depending upon the predominant layer involved. Diagnosis of eosinophilic enteritis requires a high index of suspicion and exclusion of various disorders that are associated with peripheral eosinophilia. We report a case of unusual presentation of eosinophilic enteritis clinically presenting as intestinal obstruction due to multiple strictures of the small bowel in an adult male.
