Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is a chronic immune system disease [1]. It is a recognized chronic allergic/immune condition of the esophagus [2], characterized by symptoms such as difficulty swallowing, food impaction, and abdominal pain [5]. The esophagus becomes inflamed and does not contract properly [3], leading to an accumulation of eosinophils in the tissue which can cause damage to the lining of the esophagus [4]. People with certain food or environmental allergies, asthma or eczema may be at a higher risk for developing EoE[7]. Treatment typically involves dietary modifications and medications that reduce inflammation[6][8][9][10].

Eosinophilic esophagitis (EE) is an inflammatory disorder of the esophagus caused by a buildup of white blood cells called eosinophils. EE can cause difficulty swallowing, abdominal pain, and food impaction. Treatment typically involves dietary modifications such as eliminating certain foods that may trigger symptoms or taking medications to reduce inflammation in the esophagus.
