Abstract

White blood cell (WBC)99mTc-hexamethylpropyleneamineoxime (HMPAO) scintigraphy was performed in a patient with eosinophilic gastroenteritis. WBC accumulation was detected in the terminal ileum to descending colon, and pathological studies demonstrated eosinophilic infiltration at the same region.99mTc-HMPAO-WBC scintigraphy was proved to be a useful tool for the detection of eosinophilic infiltration in eosinophilic gastroenteritis.
