Ileitis, or inflammation of the ileum, is often caused by Crohnâ€™s disease. However, ileitis may be caused by a wide variety of other diseases. These include infectious diseases, spondyloÂarthropathies, vasculitides, ischemia, neoplasms, medication-induced, eosinophilic enteritis, and others. Eosinophilic enteritis can present as abdominal pain, protein loosing enteropathy, ulcers, intestinal obstruction, intussusception and perforation.Bowel perforation is an uncommon presentation of eosinophilic enteritis. We report a rare case of ileal perforation due to eosinophilic enteritis in a 57 years old female.
