Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE) is a common condition in children, occuring more frequently in boys than in girls. It is usually associated with any of the following symptoms:

  • Nausea
  • Problems swallowing (dysphagia)
  • Vomiting
  • Stomach pain
  • Chest pain
  • Heartburn
  • Food impaction

Such symptoms are not very specific and often not easy to interpret. Thus, the diagnosis of EoE is rarely, if ever, may be done without an endoscopic exam. 

A pediatric allergist must be closely involved with treatment, which is usually focused on dietary eliminations and/or a topical steroid therapy.
