Sclerosing cholangitis
Sclerosing mesenteritis
Head and neck Eosinophilic angiocentric fibrosis (puffy, fibroinflammatory lesions of orbits and upper respiratory tract)
Orbital pseudotumor
Riedel’s thyroiditis
Mikulicz’s disease (enlargement of lacrimal, salivary, and parotid glands)
Kuttner’s tumor (salivary gland enlargement)
Allergy/respiratory Asthma, atopy, allergy
