Eosinophilic gastrointestinal disorders (EGIDs) are thought to be rare causes of diarrhea. However, recent data on incidence and prevalence have changed the perception of these diseases. In this article, we present the updated epidemiologic data, diagnostic criteria, and clinical features of EGIDs, and the differential diagnosis of the major subtypes. Clinical trial and systematic review data were used to evaluate published studies on EGIDs. In addition, we reviewed data on long-term prognosis, response to medical therapy, and health-related quality of life (HRQOL) in EGID patients. Patients with EGIDs present with diarrhea that may be accompanied by abdominal pain or bloating. Abdominal pain is usually mild and is usually relieved after eating, although abdominal pain is a common symptom of other conditions. The differential diagnosis of EGID is broad and includes other causes of eosinophilic enteritis and eosinophilic enterocolitis, the latter of which may be differentiated from EGID based on the absence of other symptoms or signs. Treatment of EGID has included the use of a wide range of medical and surgical therapies, but the use of corticosteroids is the only consistently effective therapy. At least one-half of patients with EGID have a significant impairment of HRQOL. Data on long-term prognosis of patients with EGID are limited; however, in a small series of patients who were followed for more than 10 years, no recurrences occurred and the majority of patients had no complications. Current data suggest that EGIDs are common causes of chronic diarrhea, but the epidemiology and natural history of EGIDs have changed over time. Although EGIDs are heterogeneous, most EGID patients respond to corticosteroid treatment. The HRQOL of EGID patients is impaired, but recurrences are rare and there are no known long-term complications.2/11/2017
