Eosinophilic gastroenteritis is a disease of rare incidence and unknown etiology. The descriptions of these rare cases refer to adults; there are few reports of children stricken with eosinophilic gastroenteritis. Our study presents a case of eosinophilic gastroenteritis in a 9-year-old girl suffering from recurrent abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhoea, oedema of the lower extremities and ascites. The diagnosis was based on clinical features and confirmed by histopathologic examination of a biopsy specimen obtained from an upper gastroendoscopy. Food and parasitic allergens as aetiopathogenetic agents were taken into consideration.
