Abstract

Eosinophilic esophagitis is a recently described disease characterized by the presence of upper gastrointestinal tract symptoms in association with a dense esophageal eosinophilic infiltrate. The awareness and interest of physicians and researchers in this disease has been increasing as reflected by the number of publications on this topic in the last 5 years. The aim of this review is to summarize the latest evidence with regard to epidemiology, pathogenesis, diagnostic, and management of eosinophilic esophagitis, primarily in adults and selected areas in children.
