Eosinophilic esophagitis

Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is characterized by a large number of white blood cells called eosinophils that cause inflammation in the esophagus (the tube that connects the mouth and stomach). Symptoms include:

  • Dysphagia (difficulty swallowing)

  • Food impactions (food gets stuck in esophagus)

  • Nausea and vomiting

  • Failure to thrive (poor growth, malnutrition or weight loss)

  • Abdominal or chest pain

  • Feeding refusal/intolerance or poor appetite

The diagnosis and treatment of eosinophilic esophagitis requires allergists and gastroenterologists (stomach physicians).
