Eosinophilic Esophagitis

Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE) is a condition where inflammation involving eosinophils (immune cells often involved with allergies and asthma) develops in the esophagus (the tube carrying food form your mouth to your stomach).

This condition is becoming more common. It can occur in children and adults. Often symptoms vary with age. Symptoms can consist of abdominal pain, heartburn, vomiting, difficulty swallowing, and food getting stuck in your esophagus.

It is believed that food allergies and even airborne allergies play a role in EoE. Up to 50% of patients with EoE also have allergies and/or asthma. Up to 25% of patients with EoE will notice a seasonal variation in symptoms associated with the pollen season to which they are allergic.

There is currently no cure of EoE but there are multiple treatment options. The allergists at Highland Park Allergy and Asthma Specialists can work with you to determine the best treatment plan for your lifestyle.
