Eosinophilic Duodenitis: A Case Report on Rare Disorder

Dr. Priya Dhora [2] | Dr. Abhimanyu Patial [2] | Dr. Era Sankhyayan

Abstract: Eosinophilic duodenitis (EoD) is a digestive disorder in adults that is characterized by eosinophilic infiltration in the stomach and intestine. The underlying molecular mechanisms predisposing to this disease are unknown, but it seems that hypersensitivity response plays a major role in its pathogenesis, as many patients have a history of seasonal allergies, food sensitivities, asthma, and eczema. Symptoms and clinical presentations vary, depending on the site and layer of the gastrointestinal wall infiltrated by eosinophils. Laboratory results and endoscopy can provide important diagnostic evidence for EoD; however, the cornerstone of the diagnosis remains the histological examination of gastric and duodenal specimens for evidence of eosinophilic infiltration (>20 eosinophils per high-power field), and finally clinicians make the diagnosis in correlation with and by exclusion of other disorders associated with eosinophilic infiltration.
