 A17-year-old man, who had been followed up for hematochezia from2years previously, entered our hospital because of the progression of anemia. Colonoscopy showed redness, erosion and edema of the whole colonic mucosa. Biopsy specimens taken from all areas in the colon showed marked eosinophilic infiltration. The patient was diagnosed as suffering from eosinophilic enteritis. Several weeks later, follow-up colonoscopy showed longitudinal ulcer in the descending and sigmoid colon. Subsequently, he was treated with elemental diet and steroid hormone. Consequently, longitudinal ulcer became the scar while the other lesions were almost cured. We think the longitudinal ulcer in this case arose from mucosal ischemia.
