Eosinophilic enteritis is an uncommon disease characterized by eosinophilic infiltration involving any layer of the bowel wall. It can affect any area of gastrointestinal tract although stomach and small intestine are sites most frequently involved. It is important to recognize this disease and institute the necessary treatment at the earliest in order to avoid its complications. We present a case where the patient presented with features of subacute intestinal obstruction due to distal ileal strictures and enteroliths. Histopathologic examination of the resected specimen revealed characteristic features of eosinophilic enteritis.
