    Eosinophilic gastroenteritis is an uncommon condition which usually affects the antrum of the stomach and may occasionally involve the small or large intestine (1). The main clinical feature is usually that of chronic colicky abdominal pain. We report a case presenting as acute small intestinal obstruction due to isolated involvement of the distal small intestine.
