Pathological findings in the large intestine in patients with eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis (EGPA) (ac) or chronic eosinophilic pneumonia (CEP) (df). Evidence of bleeding was present in the submucosa (a). The number of eosinophils in the submucosa was higher in patients with EGPA (ac) than in those with CEP (df).
