Eosinophilic granuloma of gastrointestinal tract represents part of systemic allergic response to one of a number of non-specific allergens. The nature of disease is primarily altered vascular response but can also present as tissue changes like necrosis and granuloma formation. Diagnosis is usually made postoperatively on biopsy of the specimen. Here we discuss such a case in a 30 year old male presented with vomiting; indigestion as chief complaint and a diagnosis of intussusception is made.
Key words: Eosinophilic granuloma, systemic allergic response, altered vascular response.
