EG occurs within the stomach. EGE occurs within both the stomach and small intestine. Eosinophils accumulate in these organs, causing redness, swelling, and injury to the tissue there. EG and EGE are most diagnosed in adults from 30 to 50 years of age. Like all EGIDs, EG and EGE can occur at any age.
EC occurs when eosinophils gather in the large intestine (colon). This then causes redness, swelling, and damage in the intestines. Learn more
