I have been waiting for the biopsy results from colonoscopy finally arriving today. However it brought only more confusion for my gastroenterologist.
Initially, she suspected an early Crohn, manifested by occasional red spots covered with white mucus in the small intestine only (no large intestine, duodenum or stomach).

The histopathological examination came back with: suspicion of Eosinophilic Gastroenteritis.
Doctor does not understand the results at this point and she has to consult.

From what I read on the internet so far is that Eosinophilic Gastroenteritis is triggered by some food allergens and leads to eosinophilic infiltration of gastrointestinal tract.

Anyone ever heard of this in or without relation to AS?
Do you reckon might be caused by NSAIDS?
thank you
