 A 30-year-old man with abdominal pain was referred to our hospital to investigate indeterminate enteritis. His laboratory tests showed marked eosinophilia and a high level of IgE. Computed tomography showed circumferential thickening of the entire small intestine and ascites. Peroral single-balloon enteroscopy revealed mucosal edema, redness, and erosion in the duodenum and the upper jejunum. Biopsies of the duodenum and jejunum showed marked infiltration by eosinophils. Administration of intravenous prednisolone improved his symptoms. CE(capsule endoscopy)was performed to assess the therapeutic effects. CE showed a mildly edematous mucosa and redness in the upper jejunum. After that, oral prednisolone was tapered off and discontinued, and there was no recurrence of his symptoms.
