J Allergy Clin Inmunol ; 6: J Pediatr Gastroenterol Nutr ; 45 3: Drug therapy Drug therapy for EE is problematic in several ways — unavailability eosinofilixa drugs specifically approved for this condition, a chronic course that discourages long-term drug administration, or absence of definite long-term prognostic data on EE and its potential complications to avert the risk of prolonged systemic treatment.

The natural history and complications of eosinophilic esophagitis.

Clin Gastroenterol Hepatol ; 6: Nat Genet ; J Allergy Clin Immunol ; 2: Motor disturbances INEE Eosinophilic infiltration in the human gut is associated with various gastrointestinal motility disorders Clin Gastroenterol Hepatol ; 3 An association between type of motor disorder and symptom duration has been established in EE 86 in such a way that adults with shorter illness have hyperkinetic disorders similar to those seen in children, whereas those with longer-standing symptoms have hypokinetic manometry recordings.


These patients must undergo endoscopy with biopsy collection, at least 5 samples preferentially from the proximal and distal thirds. Eosinophils may be diffusely distributed throughout the epithelial thickness, but tend to be more numerous in apical strata near the esophageal lumen 50 Fig.

However, symptom frequency and severity, the risks of repeated endoscopic procedures, and quality of life involvement requires a number of therapies, as follows.

Anyway, allergy should be adequately studied in all patients, since food or environmental allergies triggering the condition should be identified; adequate exposure control would be a cheap, effective, safest therapy, regardless of drug therapy needs.

The established scarce predictability of symptoms on inflammation has led to consider endoscopy with biopsy eoslnofilica in the management and follow-up of patients, as well as in the evaluation of food withdrawal or introduction effects. Gastroenterology ; 5: Clin Gastroenterol Hepatol ; 10 7: Inmunol Rev ; Prevalence of eosinophilic esophagitis in the United States.

Delay in diagnosis of eosinophilic esophagitis increases risk for stricture formation in a time-dependent manner. Gastroenterology ; 1: We may define eosinophilic esophagitis EE as a chronic esophageal inflammatory disorder, immunoallergic in nature and of unknown origin that is characterized by dense infiltration by eosinophilic granulocytes that is restricted to the esophagus.

Management must be multidisciplinary, including gastroenterologists, pathologists, allergologists, and also nutrition specialists in pediatric cases. The various changes seen esofagtis the organ’s surface translate the different severities of histological epithelial lesions, and a direct correlation between endoscopic severity, esofaitis severity, and eosinophilic inflammatory infiltration density and activation has been reported Effect of six-food elimination diet on clinical and histologic outcomes in eosinophilic esophagitis.
