Radiographics 2022 Jun 24:220004. Epub 2022 Jun 24.

From the Department of Radiology (M.Y., A.D.T.A., Z.S.K., M.L.W., J.P.H., S.P.S., J.L.F., S.K.V.) and Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology (M.S.T.), Mayo Clinic, 200 2nd St SW, Rochester, MN 55905; and Department of Diagnostic Imaging, National University Health System, Singapore (L.L.S.T.).

Eosinophilic gastrointestinal disorders (EGIDs) are inflammatory conditions of the gastrointestinal tract that are characterized by tissue eosinophilia and end-organ dysfunction or damage. Primary EGIDs are associated with atopy and other allergic conditions, whereas secondary EGIDs are associated with underlying systemic diseases or hypereosinophilic syndrome. Within the spectrum of EGIDs, eosinophilic esophagitis is the most prevalent. Read More

Follow-Up of a Rare Case of Eosinophilic Gastroenteritis Associated with Persistent Blood Eosinophilia and Multiple Food Allergies.

Diagnostics (Basel) 2022 Jun 2;12(6). Epub 2022 Jun 2.

Clinical Department 5, Carol Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy, 050474 Bucharest, Romania.

Eosinophilic gastroenteritis (EGE) is a subgroup of the eosinophilic gastro-intestinal disorders (EGIDs), characterized by eosinophilic infiltration and chronic inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract. These are rare diseases with still incompletely elucidated causes and mechanisms, with frequently delayed diagnosis and variable outcome. Despite increased interest in eosinophilic diseases in recent years, fewer data have been published on EGE and no standardized diagnostic and therapeutic approach exists. Read More

OX40 Expression in Eosinophils Aggravates OVA-Induced Eosinophilic Gastroenteritis.

Front Immunol 2022 2;13:841141. Epub 2022 Jun 2.

Department of Gastroenterology, Peking University Ninth School of Clinical Medicine, Beijing, China.

Background & Aims: Eosinophils are the main inflammatory effector cells that damage gastrointestinal tissue in eosinophilic gastrointestinal diseases (EGIDs). Activation of the OX40 pathway aggravates allergic diseases, such as asthma, but it is not clear whether OX40 is expressed in eosinophils to regulate inflammation in EGIDs. In this study, we assessed the expression and effect of OX40 on eosinophils in WT and eosinophilic gastroenteritis (EGE) mice. Read More

Nutritional and Psychological Considerations for Dietary Therapy in Eosinophilic Esophagitis.

Nutrients 2022 Apr 12;14(8). Epub 2022 Apr 12.

Department of Gastroenterology, Hospital Universitario de Caceres, 10004 Caceres, Spain.

The step-up empiric elimination diet, starting from one/two food groups of most local allergens remains the current gold standard for a dietary approach in eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) patients. Milk, followed by wheat and egg, is the most frequent food that triggers EoE in pediatric and adult patients. Elimination diets, with restrictions over four food groups, may be limited to highly motivated patients, in which nutritional counseling is recommended. Read More

Korean J Gastroenterol 2022 Mar;79(3):99-108

Research Institute for Convergence of Biomedical Science and Technology, Pusan National University Yangsan Hospital, Yangsan, Korea.

Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is a chronic, immune/antigen-mediated esophageal disease characterized by symptoms of esophageal dysfunction and eosinophil-predominant inflammation. The diagnostic criteria for EoE have changed with our growing knowledge over the past two decades. Esophageal eosinophilia, which responds histologically to a proton pump inhibitor (PPI) is not a distinct disease but a subset of EoE. Read More

Endoscopic diagnosis of chronic diarrhea.

DEN open 2022 Apr 28;2(1):e53. Epub 2021 Sep 28.

Department of Gastroenterology Steel Memorial Hirohata Hospital Hyogo Japan.

The prevalence of chronic diarrhea in the general population is reported to be 4%-5%. Since various pathological conditions cause diarrheal symptoms, etiological diagnosis of chronic diarrhea is difficult in many cases. Medical history taking, physical examinations, and laboratory testing are not adequately sensitive or specific, thus a colonoscopic investigation is frequently employed for etiological evaluation.

Colonic mucosal eosinophilia and immunohistochemical expression of COX-2 and NF-kB in patients with irritable bowel syndrome.

Eur J Gastroenterol Hepatol 2022 05;34(5):512-517

Department of Endemic Medicine.

Background: There is growing evidence that eosinophilic infiltration can release mediators which are harmful to the intestinal epithelium in patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Although cyclooxygenase 2 (COX-2) and nuclear factor-kappa beta (NF-kB) expression had been previously reported to increase in many inflammatory conditions, there is a paucity in data investigating their expressions in IBS. Our aim was to evaluate colonic mucosal eosinophilia and immunohistochemical expression of COX-2 and NF-kB in patients with irritable bowel syndrome. Read More

Division of Gastroenterology, Department of Internal Medicine 2, Kawasaki Medical School, Okayama, Japan.

Background And Aim: The majority of patients with eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) are likely to have observable features under narrow-band imaging, namely beige mucosa. However, the histological features and clinical implications of beige mucosa have not been investigated. The aim of this study was to determine whether beige mucosa could serve as an endoscopic marker for predicting active inflammatory sites of EoE. Read More
