What is EOE?

EoE, or eosinophilic esophagitis, is an chronic inflammatory condition of the esophagus which is caused and maintained mainly by an allergic reaction to food. EoE is characterized by esophageal symptoms (including swallowing difficulty, food impaction, and heartburn, among others) and inflammation of the esophagus by eosinophils, a type of white blood cell.

First descibed abiut 2 decades ago, EoE represents today a very frequent cause of difficulty swallowing, food impaction, regurgitation, vomiting, and decreased appetite, mainly in joung people. However, EoE may afect patients of all ages and genders, but it is more common in males. In fact, the chronic nature of EoE and associated functioning disturbances significantly impact the quality of life of adults and children who suffer from this disorder.

EoE people usually have other associated allergic diseases, so the management of this disorder can be especially tricky.
