Idiopathic Eosinophilic enteritis (IEE) is a disease of unknown cause reported in humans and various animal species. In cattle it has been accepted since 1998 as a rare entity, with few reports worldwide. This study documents the process of a cow that showed intestinal inflammation of chronic characteristics, diagnosed with IEE based on clinical and histopathological analysis as well as the exclusion of other intestinal diseases. This account is based on the first report of this condition in Colombian cattle and aims to describe clinical and anatomopathologic findings and the discussion of its possible causes and mechanisms of the disease. Because no infectious agents were identified in the case studied, and the fact hat the cow presented related neoplasms, the most probable mechanism of disease presented is the, paraneoplastic hypereosinophilia syndrome.
