EAACI Webinar on Eosinophilic Esophagitis

Eosinophilic esophagitis is an immune-mediated chronic disease, characterized by marked eosinophil-predominant inflammatory infiltration of the esophagus. It is the second most common cause of chronic esophagitis, after GERD, with an increasing prevalence. Most cases of EoE are diagnosed in the pediatric age group or in the third decade of life, with a variety of symptoms. Diagnosis is clinicopathological and endoscopy often reveals characteristic features. The treatment is based on pharmaceutical therapy (PPIs, corticosteroids etc.), elimination diets are other therapeutic approaches. A multidisciplinary approach is necessary for the proper diagnosis and treatment of EoE.
