Abstract

A young woman experienced twice in eight years acute, self-limited episodes of gastroenteritis with marked eosinophilia, each one associated with or triggered by a normal delivery. This patient had a normal gastric mucosal biopsy, thus lacking one of the major criteria required by precious authors for the definition of eosinophilic gastroenteritis. Nevertheless, it is our belief that this case does represent a milder and more benign form of the very same syndrome, associated in a dubious way with labor.
