Abstract

Eosinophilic Gastrointestinal Diseases (EGID) are uncommon to rare gastrointestinal eosinophilic infiltrated clinicopathological conditions, ranging from the esophagus to the sigmoid colon. Outside of the near immediate newborn period, associated with milk or soy protein colitis ( Food protein-induced allergic proctocolitis) 1 the presence of exaggerated gastrointestinal eosinophilia is clinically relevant and has long-term concerns. In this review the separate clinical EGID conditions will be briefly reviewed, with added clinical pearls, based on an extensive Pediatric Allergy-Immunology experience.
