Eosinophilic gastroenteritis (EGE) is a rare disease with a myriad of presentations. In this case series of four patients from South India, we describe three classical manifestations of the disease (mucosal, muscular, and serosal). Two of them had obstructive jaundice as a presenting complaint due to duodenal obstruction, whereas one had massive upper gastrointestinal bleed. There are very few case series regarding this disease from India. Its presentation as hemetemesis and obstructive jaundice is also very rare,with only few such case reports reported till now.
