Eosinophilic gastroenteritis (EG) is an uncommon disorder characterized by presence of gastrointestinal symptoms, eosinophilic infiltration of one or more divisions of the gastrointestinal tract without involvement of other organs, and absence of infestation by parasites. The etiology and the pathogenesis of EG are poorly understood. The clinical presentation depends on the gastrointestinal division affected and the wall layers infiltrated. The usual symptoms are abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea and vomiting, and recurrent ascites. Involvement of the serosa, observed in 10% of cases, typically results in the formation of eosinophilic ascites. It has been suggested that EG can be accompanied by extraintestinal involvement, although, it is very unusual. We experienced a case of eosinophilic enterocolitis involving small bowel and colon with eosinophilic ascites and cystitis in a 40-year-old male with abdominal pain and watery diarrhea. We report this case with a brief review of the literatures.(Korean J Med 69:S746-S752, 2005)
