Clinical manifestations and morphological characteristics, a retrospective study of 42 patients. In general, patients can be successfully treated with corticosteroids, but relapses are common. It was very important for the patient to associate diet management with the use of prednisone, which facilitated relief from symptoms and normalization of the number of eosinophils in our patient.

The patient was hospitalized for investigations, and complementary tests were performed. There were no signs of malignancy.

He was afebrile, anicteric and acyanotic. Anatomical-pathological confirmation is necessary for diagnosis, as well as the absence of extraintestinal eosinophilic infiltration 3. Am J Gastroenterol ; This allows antigens to cross the mucosa, thus inducing degranulation of mast cells, which release chemotactic factors that recruit eosinophils. An increase in immunoglobulin E levels may also be associated [ 41112 ].

In general, patients can be successfully treated with corticosteroids, but relapses are common. Pathological anatomy is characterized by an eosinophil-predominant infiltrate which must exceed per high-power field 7.

The test for carcinoembryonic antigen CEA was negative 0. Pleural effusion or increased eosinophil counts may be revealed by biopsy of pleural specimens. After a few weeks, the patient developed acute obstructive abdomen with ascites, which was atypically improved with the use of antispasmodics and analgesics.

World J Gastroenterol ; In addition, false-negative results from biopsies of the gastric and intestinal mucosa may occur because the eosinophils may either be sparse or clustered in the deeper layers of the walls with affected mucosa.
