Eosinophilic esophagitis is an allergic inflammatory disease that is characterized by elevated levels of white blood cells called eosinophils in the esophagus, the tube that connects the mouth to the stomach. According to the American Partnership for Eosinophilic Disorders, these eosinophils damage the esophagus and persist even when people are treated with acid-blocking medications.
The basics symptoms of eosinophilic esophagitis are not always the same, they can vary among individuals and may differ depending on age. But there are the most common symptoms and there are reflux, that does not get better after taking acid reflux medication, difficulty swallowing, food getting stuck in the esophagus, nausea, vomiting, abdominal or chest pain, and in children, failure to thrive, poor growth, and refusing to eat.
Eosinophilic esophagitis can affect people of all ages and backgrounds, although males are more commonly affected than females. People who have eosinophilic esophagitis often have other allergic diseases, such as asthma, eczema, or rhinitis. Eosinophilic esophagitis can be driven by food intolerance or allergies. Sheth noted that eosinophilic esophagitis is becoming more common.
