NOT ECE but Eosinophilic Granulomatous or sometimes referred to as Eosinoph=

ntified by taking biopsies from liver, GI tract, mesenteric lymph nodes and=
This is an uncommon disease of unknown etiology. It is characterized by eo=
sinophilic infiltrates and granulomas involving the abdominal lymphatics an=
d multiple organs. The intestines are usually involved when cases are reco=
gnized, but the inflammatory process does not appear to originate in the gu=
t mucosa; it is more an eosinophilic lymphangitis. Thus, this is not a for=
m of true "inflammatory bowel disease," and the term "eosinophilic gastroen=
teritis" is a misnomer.
