Eosinophilic Esophagitis

Why is Eosinophilic Esophagitis such a big deal?

Hi there!

Eosinophillic oesophagitis is not as common and symptoms often mimic GERD or gastritis, not making it an easily diagnosable condition. However most patients tend to have normal pH and it would require several endoscopic biopsies for a diagnosis to be made.
Hope this information is helpful.

Take care!
