Diagnosis and treatment of eosinophilic esophagitis
Spergel JM, Brown-Whitehorn T

Educational Needs Addressed Eosinophilic esophagitis (EE) has been diagnosed with increasing frequency over the last 10 years. Patients may present with a variety of symptoms including vomiting, failure to thrive, abdominal pain, dysphagia, and/or food impaction, depending on the age of the patient. The diagnosis is confirmed by endoscopy with eosinophilic inflammation localized to the esophagus (an area typically void of eosinophils). Although the underlying pathophysiology is unknown, food allergens are thought to play a primary role. EE can be an elusive entity. Physician knowledge of the approach to diagnosis and treatment of EE in children and in adults is needed to promote optimal clinical outcomes. Educational Objectives After participating in this CME activity, primary care physicians should be able to 1. Describe the clinical presentation of EE 2. State the differential diagnosis of EE 3. Outline treatment strategies for EE
