    ABSTRACT: Eosinophilic gastroenteritis is a rare gastrointestinal (GI) disorder of undetermined origin, characterized by infiltration of eosinophils in the GI tract. Different layers of the bowel wall can be involved and the clinical outlook depends on the area affected. Our subject is a male patient in whom the disease involves the muscular layer causing obstructive jejunitis. The diagnosis was made after surgical resection. A relapse was subsequently treated with short-term intravenous steroids followed by oral budesonide for three months. Treatment was effective with no apparent side effects.

    ABSTRACT: Ulcerative jejunoileitis and enteropathy-associated T-cell lymphoma are rare conditions described in patients with refractory coeliac disease. Ulcerations affect the small bowel and are unrelated to drugs, ischaemia, infections or other known causes. We describe a female patient with an unclassified enteropathy who experienced several episodes of jejunoileal ulcerations. Several resections of the small bowel segments were necessary. The repetitive ulcerations were either from cytotoxic T cells, the patient developed a T-cell lymphoma, and malignant cells could be detected at the bottom of the ulcers, or from acid-producing cells in areas of gastric metaplasia. Two mechanisms might thus be responsible for the occurrence of repetitive ulceration, and require different treatment strategies. The patient is currently being treated with proton pump inhibitors, oral steroids and parenteral nutrition.
