Eosinophilic gastroenteritis is an inflammatory gastrointestinal disease characterized by eosinophilic infiltration of the digestive tract. The subserous type is the rarest form and diagnosis is challenging because the symptoms are heterogeneous and endoscopy may be non-diagnostic. The authors describe the clinical case of a 41-year-old female patient who was diagnosed with subserous eosinophilic gastroenteritis. This case highlights the importance of clinical suspicion of eosinophilic gastroenteritis in patients in the third to fifth decades of life with gastrointestinal symptoms, ascites and eosinophilia
