Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to conduct a translational study in patients with primary eosinophil associated gastrointestinal disorders [EGID] (e.g. eosinophilic esophagitis eosinophilic gastritis, eosinophilic enteritis [EE], eosinophilic colitis, and eosinophilic gastroenteritis [EGE]) with the aim of developing a data bank containing pertinent patient demographic information, tissue samples, and DNA, which will facilitate research on the pathophysiology of inflammatory disorders and the development of a verified successful clinical treatment program.
