Esosinophilic granuloma of the stomach

Van Rensburg L.C.J. ; Keet A.D. ; Adams G. (1986)

Two patients with eosinophilic granuloma of the stomach are discussed. The first patient had extensive and time-consuming investigations before the diagnosis was confirmed after surgery, while the second patient's presentation corresponded so closely to the first that a correct preoperative diagnosis was entertained with a minimum of investigations and delay. The barium-meal examinations in both patients were very typical of the condition, but the endoscopy findings and biopsy histology reports were noncontributory. Neither of the patients had a history of allergy or eosinophilia. The lesions were localized to the distal part of the stomach and the resected specimens were microscopically typical of eosinophilic granuloma of the stomach.
