Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE): A condition that involves eosinophilic influx into the esophagus epithelium. It affects both children as well as adults. Adults present with dysphagia whereas children with vague abdominal complaints were being affected. The clinical symptoms, as well as pathological features of EoE and gastroesophageal reflux disease, are similar. Since eosinophilia in the esophagus is a non-specific finding, the clinical presentation in conjunction with endoscopic findings and pathology is crucial in determining a differential diagnosis. Because of the similarity between EoE and reflux, reflux should be excluded by using high proton pump inhibitors or through evidence of a normal pH by esophageal testing prior to treatment with an elimination diet or orally swallowed inhaled steroids.
