I was wondering if  anyone else has received biopsy results like this and if so were they told that it might be eosinphilic gastritis?  He was diagnosed with Crohn's in 2005 andf has had abscesses since then.  He is currently exhibiting symptoms with light activity such as his skin gets very cold to the touch, slighty disoriented feeling and needs to sit, as if he were going into shock or something.  His sed ratre is good.  His cal-protectin test showed high inflammation.  His weight is too good.  He is growing, but is unable to function with any level of activity for long.  He also seems to be out of breath a lot he thinks that it may be anxiety).
1. terminal illium - subacute inflammation with 40 esoniphils per high power field mucosa / also non-caseating granuloma are identified
2. cecum-40 per " " " " " " " "  2-6 DO NOT HAVE GRANULOMAS
3. ascending colon- 50 per"""""""""""""
4. transverse colon- 30 per""""""""
5. descending colon- 20 per"""""""""
6. sigmoid colon- mild active inflammation, mucosa
7. rectum was fine.
This is for my 14 year old son and I am trying to determine if this is a case of eosinophilic gastritis or not before we see the Dr. on the 20th.  If so, I want to make sure that we see an allergist soon.  It seems to be pretty rare, but also maybe a possibility on top of Crohn's.
If anyone has any input it would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your help,
