|Eosinophilic Gastrointestinal Disorders (EGIDs) Eosinophilic Esophagitis Eosinophilic Gastritis Eosinophilic Gastroenteritis Eosinophilic Colitis|
This is a longitudinal observational study in which individuals (males and females 3 years of age and greater) with EoE, EG, EGE and EC will be followed over the course of time to see if standard questionnaires can give us an idea of how well the person is doing.
Participants undergoing standard of care (normal, routine care) endoscopies and/or colonoscopies will have biopsies (small pieces of tissue from the GI tract normally collected during these procedures) collected and used for the research study. Participants will also complete questionnaires related to their symptoms and quality of life. Participants will be followed over the course of time and asked to complete the questionnaires at various time points throughout the study.

- Mucosal eosinophilia (eos/hpf) [ Time Frame: Duration of funding, approximately 5 years ]Mucosal eosinophil levels are measured as eosinophils per high power field (eos/hpf). The primary outcome measure is to determine the change in mucosal eosinophil level (eos/hpf) and to determine if the change in mucosal eosinophil level in eos/hpf correlates with the change in scores on clinical outcome measure metrics.
