Eosinophilic Esophagitis

Eosinophilic esophagitis or EoE is an inflammatory condition where cells called eosinophils build-up in the esophagus and cause local inflammation. Symptoms can include chest pain, food impaction (food getting stuck in the esophagus), difficulty swallowing, food regurgitation, abdominal pain, vomiting or reflux that does not improve with medications. The inflammation in the esophagus may be due to many factors, one being food allergies. These food allergies are a little different in that patients do not typically have hives, swelling or difficulty breathing but instead there is a local reaction to the food occurring in the esophagus. The diagnosis of EoE is made by gastroenterologists and allergists assist in the treatment by identifying potential food allergen triggers.
