[Eosinophilic gastroenteritis in a patient with Albright's hereditary osteodystrophy].
An Esp Pediatr. 2002 Jun; 56(6):576-8.AE

Abstract

Eosinophilic gastroenteritis is an uncommon chronic disease, of unknown cause, characterized by eosinophilic infiltration of the gastrointestinal tract, which is usually associated with peripheral blood eosinophilia. The symptoms of this complex disorder are variable, and frequently include abdominal pain, nausea, diarrhea, protein losing enteropathy and malabsorption. In general, patients can be successfully treated with corticosteroids, but relapses are common. We present the first case of a 6-year-old boy with Albright's hereditary osteodystrophy (Pseudohypoparathyroidism Ia) associated with eosinophilic gastroenteritis. Alternatives to traditional treatment with corticosteroids are discussed.
