Abstract

As the popularity of laparoscopic cholecystectomy continues to grow, evaluation of patients with documented cholelithiasis and concomitant vague abdominal complaints becomes less rigorous. We present the case of a patient with chronic cholecystitis documented by history and ultrasonography, incidentally noted on laboratory examination to have peripheral blood eosinophilia. At the time of laparoscopy, an inflamed segment of jejunum was discovered. Limited laparotomy and wedge biopsy revealed active eosinophilic enteritis.
