REVIEW
Stuart Jon Spechler
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The frequency of eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE), an immune/antigen-mediated disorder first described in 1993, has been increasing rapidly. The purpose of this review is to consider hypotheses proposed to explain this increase and to speculate on their validity. RECENT FINDINGS: The hygiene hypothesis attributes the rise of EoE to modern hygienic conditions resulting in fewer childhood infections with microbes that might have protected against allergy development...

Guidelines for eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) require high-dose PPI (HD-PPI) trial to evaluate for PPI-responsive esophageal eosinophilia (PPI-REE) prior to EoE diagnosis and dedicated therapy. This involves a second esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) to assess for PPI-REE. This study is to evaluate adherence to current guidelines in evaluation of PPI-REE and EoE. Retrospective review of new patients treated with HD-PPI after an index EGD showing >15 eos/hpf in esophageal biopsies. One hundred and eighty patients had an index EGD with esophageal eosinophilia of >15 eos/hpf...

REVIEW
Christine James, Amal Assa'ad
Although eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) has been described in the literature for a substantial period, its recognition as a disease entity on the global stage is still relatively new. It has become a major diagnosis of consideration by medical providers when both adult and pediatric patients present with dysphagia, food impaction, and gastroesophageal reflux-like symptoms. In addition to the clinical work of specialists such as allergy-immunologists and gastroenterologists, the evolution of research organizations and advocacy groups focused on EoE have greatly assisted in bringing attention to, and raising awareness about, this disease...

BACKGROUND: Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is characterized by histopathologic modifications of esophageal tissue including eosinophil-rich inflammation, basal zone hyperplasia (BZH) and dilated intercellular spaces (DIS). The underlying molecular processes that drive the histopathologic features of EoE remain largely unexplored. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the involvement of SLC9A3 in esophageal epithelial [pH]i and DIS formation and the histopathological features of EoE...

Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is a chronic immune-mediated esophageal disease, with a rising incidence in childhood. The diagnosis is confirmed by esophageal mucosa eosinophil-predominant inflammation. Rare complications, such as intramural esophageal dissection (IED) due to progressive transmural inflammatory and fibrotic process, may occur in young adults. While severe cases can require immediate surgical intervention, conservative management may be also effective, as recently reported by Ibáñez-Sanz et al...

BACKGROUND: Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is a chronic esophageal inflammation that may lead to stricture formation. This narrowing can cause major complications including food impactions. Despite increasing interest in EoE accurate data on its natural course is scarce. Therefore, we aimed to investigate the natural course of EoE and to evaluate the association between undiagnosed disease and the occurrence of complications over two decades in a large cohort. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed charts of patients diagnosed with EoE between 1996 and 2015, collected from 15 hospitals throughout the Netherlands...

BACKGROUND: Allergen-specific IgG4 antibodies are often associated with tolerance, but specific IgG4 antibodies (sIgG4 ) to causally relevant foods have recently been reported in adult eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE). Prevalence and levels of food-sIgG4 are not well established in the general pediatric population. OBJECTIVE: We sought to investigate serum food-sIgG4 with component diagnostics in children with EoE and children from an unselected birth cohort and to explore the effects of sex, age and milk consumption on sIgG4 levels METHODS: Sera from 71 cases of pediatric EoE and 210 early-adolescent children from an unselected birth cohort (Project Viva) were assayed for sIgG4 and specific IgE (sIgE) to major cow's milk (CM) proteins (α-lactalbumin, β-lactoglobulin, caseins) and to wheat, soy, egg, and peanut proteins...

Eosinophilic esophagitis is a chronic immune-mediated esophageal disorder. For its timely diagnosis, clinicians must recognize common symptoms, and understand differences in symptoms across patient groups. The aim of this study is to systematically review the epidemiology and natural history of eosinophilic esophagitis. The MEDLINE, Embase, and Cochrane databases were searched from 1974 to February 2017 for studies describing the epidemiology and natural history of eosinophilic esophagitis. Congress abstracts from 2014 to 2016 were also searched...

Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is a chronic allergic inflammatory disease of the esophagus that effects children and adults. Typical symptoms of EoE typically involve failure to thrive and vomiting in small children, and dysphagia and food impaction in adolescents and adults. However, throat clearing, choking, gagging, and hoarseness have also been observed and these issues often bring patients to first seek otolaryngology and pulmonary evaluation. Diagnosis is only made by esophogastroduodenoscopy with biopsy, so clinicians must have a low threshold for considering eosinophilic esophagitis even in the absence of frank gastrointestinal symptoms...

Here we report a retrospective cross-sectional study on Esophageal eosinophilia (EsEo) frequency in Brazil, for 2, 425 pediatric patients with symptoms associated with gastroesophageal diseases in 2012. EsEo is defined by ≥15 eosinophils per high power field (400x) and confirmed through histological analyses of esophageal biopsies. Overall, 126 patients had EsEo equating to a frequency of 5.2%. There was a significant difference between the endoscopic features of patients with EsEo, where 10.7% had erosive esophagitis, 3...

Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is a unique form of non-IgE-mediated food allergy characterized by esophageal eosinophilic infiltration that commonly causes dysphagia and food impaction in children and adolescents. Assessing the efficacy of dietary restrictions or drug therapies to achieve clinical and histologic resolution of EoE through randomized controlled trials and meta-analyses has resulted in new evidence-based guidelines. Avoiding food triggers is the only therapy targeting the cause of the disease...

OBJECTIVES: Rising trends in eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) have been repeatedly linked to declining Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection, mostly in retrospective studies. We aimed to prospectively evaluate this inverse association. METHODS: Prospective case-control study conducted in 23 centers. Children and adults naïve to eradication therapy for H. pylori were included. Cases were EoE patients, whereas controls were defined by esophageal symptoms and <5 eos/HPF on esophageal biopsies...

BACKGROUND: There is a need for effective, non-steroid pharmacologic therapies for eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE). Cromolyn sodium offers an option as mast cells have been implicated in the symptomatology of EoE and cromolyn has also been shown to have some anti-eosinophilic properties. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the efficacy of cromolyn in reducing esophageal eosinophilia in patients with eosinophilic esophagitis. Secondary outcomes included symptom improvement and adverse effects...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is a chronic disorder in children that requires continued assessment of disease activity, involving repeated sedation, endoscopy, and biopsy analysis. We investigated whether mucosal impedance measurements can be used to monitor disease activity in pediatric patients with EoE. METHODS: We measured mucosal impedance at 3 locations in the esophagus in pediatric patients (1-18 years old; 32 with active EoE, 10 with inactive EoE, 32 with non-erosive reflux disease [NERD]) and 53 children with symptoms but normal findings from histologic analyses (controls) undergoing routine esophagogastroduodenoscopy at the Vanderbilt Pediatric Gastroenterology Clinic...

Eosinophilic esophagitis is a chronic, immune-mediated esophageal disease triggered predominantly, but not exclusively, by food antigens. Presently, available food allergy tests are suboptimal to predict food triggers for eosinophilic esophagitis, especially in adults. Elemental diets (exclusive feeding with amino acid-based formulas) and empiric 6-food elimination diets (withdrawing milk, wheat, egg, soy, nuts, and fish/seafood for 6 weeks) have consistently shown the best efficacy rates. However, their high level of restriction and need for multiple endoscopies have hampered their implementation in clinical practice...

OBJECTIVES: TSLP has been shown to be associated with eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE). Specifically, children with EoE often have the nucleotides AA or AG instead of GG at the single nucleotide polymorphism position RS3806932. Presently, the phenotypic characteristics in EoE children with the TSLP EoE risk allele are unknown. METHODS: A retrospective analysis was performed of all children with EoE who had TSLP genotyping at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia from 2008-2014...
