Over the last several years, eosinophilic esophagitis in adults is an increasingly recognized disease in various parts of world. A 77-year-old male with a gastric submucosal tumor was referred to our department for endoscopic ultrasonography. During the examination, there was some resistance in inserting the echoendoscope into the esophagus. Detailed endoscopic examination of the esophagus showed narrow lumen and scattered whitish plaques, and biopsy of the esophagus revealed more than 20 eosinophils per high-power field. We diagnosed this case as eosinophilic esophagitis and treated successfully by topical steroid. We report a case of eosinophilic esophagitis found incidentally during endoscopic ultrasonography for a gastric submucosal tumor. (Korean J Gastrointest Endosc 2009; 39:212-216)
