Pediatric eosinophilic esophagitis: a review for the clinician

The unmet needs in diagnosis and treatment that require urgent attention from the scientific community are highlighted in the aim of improving the management of patients with EoE.

Management Guidelines of Eosinophilic Esophagitis in Childhood

EoE is a chronic, relapsing inflammatory disease with largely unquantified long-term consequences, and better maintenance treatment as well as biomarkers for assessing treatment response and predicting long- term complications is urgently needed.

Eosinophilic Esophagitis in Children: Updates in Diagnosis and Management

The diagnosis and management of EoE in the children from the perspective of the pediatric gastroenterology specialist is explored.

Eosinophilic Esophagitis: A Paradigm Shift for Pathology

This is the first report of a clearly demarcated time point reflecting a paradigm shift in the histologic diagnosis of EoE as a distinct entity resulting from a seminal consensus report.

Current Approach to the Management of Eosinophilic Esophagitis in Adults

Recent studies suggest that patients with PPI-REE have similar clinical and endoscopic features of patients with EoE, and both patients have a strong disposition to allergy compared to patients without eosinophilia.

The importance of utilizing endoscopy, biopsies, and barium esophagram to help define the 2 phenotypes (inflammatory, fibrostenosis) of EoE will be highlighted and a useful clinical management algorithm presented.

Eosinophilic Esophagitis: Review and Update

A better understanding of EoE's pathogenesis, genetic background, natural history, allergy workup, standardization in assessment of disease activity, evaluation of minimally invasive diagnostic tools, and new therapeutic approaches are contributed to.

Eosinophilic esophagitis: diagnostic tests and criteria

The clinical, endoscopic, and histologic features of eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE), review the current diagnostic guidelines for EoE, and present an approach for diagnosis are presented.

Pediatric eosinophilic esophagitis: updates for the primary care setting

Identification and diagnosis of pediatric patients with EoE is critical to prevent long-term esophageal complications and dietary elimination and swallowed steroid therapy are recommended for long- term management.



Eosinophilic esophagitis in children and adults: a systematic review and consensus recommendations for diagnosis and treatment.

A multidisciplinary task force of 31 physicians assembled with the goal of determining diagnostic criteria and making recommendations for evaluation and treatment of children and adults with suspected eosinophilic esophagitis (EE) provided current recommendations for care of affected patients.

Variability in Diagnostic Criteria for Eosinophilic Esophagitis: A Systematic Review

Significant variability in diagnostic criteria for eosinophilic esophagitis exists, and in a large proportion of studies, criteria are not reported, so conclusions drawn from the cumulative EoE literature should be viewed with caution.

Histopathologic Variability in Children With Eosinophilic Esophagitis

Significant histologic variability exists among biopsy specimens from pediatric patients with EoE, which can persist following proton pump inhibitor therapy in patients withEoE and gastroesophageal reflux disease when the latter is defined by increased distal esophageAL acid exposure.

Diagnostic Criteria for Eosinophilic Esophagitis: A 5-year Retrospective Review in a Pediatric Population

Misdiagnosed EE cases decreased but prevalence appeared to increase, and the key variables that predict EE were typical endoscopic findings and improvement from specific EE treatment, and whether the Luna eosinophil granule (LEG) stain detects eos inophils better than hematoxylin and eOSin (HE).

It is highly recommended that clinicians obtainBiopsies from patients suspected of have EOE only after treatment with high-dose proton pump inhibitor therapy, and that biopsies be obtained from both the proximal and distal esophagus in both normal and abnormal appearing areas.

All literature published in English from December 2005 to November 2006 from PubMed on the topic of eosinophilic esophagitis is reviewed, confirming that nearly all patients respond to an elemental diet with resolution of symptoms and normalization of biopsies.

Eosinophilic esophagitis: a prevalent disease in the United States that affects all age groups.

Dysphagia and GERD symptoms are common indications for endoscopy and the degree of eosinophilic infiltration is high throughout all ages and may be related to patients' symptoms.

Distinguishing Eosinophilic Esophagitis in Pediatric Patients: Clinical, Endoscopic, and Histologic Features of An Emerging Disorder

It is demonstrated that school-aged children, particularly boys, who complain of dysphagia should raise the index of suspicion for EE, and it is suggested that EE-associated strictures are more common than peptic strictures in children.
