Therapy with proton-pump inhibitors (PPIs) results in remission in at least one third of patients with esophageal eosinophilia, presumably because of both their acid-related and anti-inflammatory mechanisms of action. However, eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) may also develop during therapy with PPIs. We present a case series of four children who were initially diagnosed with infectious esophagitis, gastroesophageal reflux disease or gastric ulcer, who had no eosinophilic infiltration of the… CONTINUE READING
