AIMS Eosinophil infiltration of the oesophageal epithelium is the cardinal pathomorphological finding in eosinophilic oesophagitis (EO), but gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD) is also associated with increased eosinophils. The aim was to compare histological parameters for the diagnosis of EO versus GORD on routinely taken biopsy specimens. METHODS AND RESULTS One hundred and five routine biopsy specimens with EO (n = 62), GORD (n = 24) and probable EO (n = 19) from 74 patients (52 men… CONTINUE READING
