Eosinophilic gastrointestinal disorders are rare in children and present with a broad spectrum of non-specific symptoms. To date, no guidelines for diagnosis, therapy and follow-up are validated. Aim of our study is to focus on eosinophilic colitis (EC), to determine a possible correlation between associated disorders, macroscopic findings and treatment/follow up.
