Abstract

Eosinophilic ascites (EA) is an exceedingly rare disorder of unknown etiology characterized by elevated number of eosinophils in ascitic fluid. EA is the rarest subtype of eosinophilic gastroenteritis and is characterized by infiltration of eosinophils in serosal layer of gastrointestinal tract. EA usually occurs in female patients, is mostly associated with atopic disorders, and is easily treatable with corticosteroids. Association with pregnancy is rare and why it occurs in pregnant females is unknown. We report a case of EA which to our knowledge is the first case of idiopathic EA in a pregnant patient and was easily treatable with corticosteroids without adverse effect on fetus.
