Eosinophilic gastroenteritis (EG) is an uncommon disorder, characterised by cramping abdominal pain, diarrhoea and vomiting and histologically by eosinophilic infiltration of bowel wall. We present a patient who developed EG during the course of a systemic, necrotising vasculitis, who became critically ill after failure of treatment with corticosteroids and cytotoxic drugs and responded only to oral sodium chromoglycate.
