RECIO LINARES, Aránzazu et al. Eosinophilic colitis: think about it. Rev Pediatr Aten Primaria [online]. 2019, vol.21, n.84, pp.405-410.  Epub 25-Mayo-2020. ISSN 1139-7632.

Eosinophilic colitis is a primary gastrointestinal disease of unknown etiology and related to allergic processes. It is defined by the presence of an abnormal number of eosinophils in the colonic mucosa together with symptoms of intestinal dysfunction. Its incidence has increased in the last years due to a growing recognition. Diagnosis is endoscopic and requires the exclusion of other colonic eosinophilia causes, such as the inflammatory bowel disease, among others. Diagnosis criteria are not well stablished since there is no certainty about the normal number of eosinophilic cells in the different sections of the gastrointestinal tract. Likewise, treatment is based on expert opinion. Two cases of eosinophilic colitis in childhood are presented with the aim of improving the disease awareness as well as highlighting the need to carry out investigations that allow the homogenization of the management of this pathology.
