Aim  To report a series of 17 children affected by eosinophilic oesophagitis. Six of them also received a diagnosis of coeliac disease. 
Systematic review: the association between eosinophilic oesophagitis and coeliac disease
The relationship between eosinophilic oesophagitis (EoE) and coeliac disease (CD) remains controversial, with studies yielding varied results.
Association of celiac disease with eosophageal eosinophilia and eosinophilic eosophagitis
Aim of the study was to evaluate the association between celiac disease and eosinophilic oesophagitis/oesophageal eosinophilia in children.
A Link Between Eosinophilic Esophagitis and Celiac Disease
TLDR
EoE is an inflammatory disorder that is characterized by severe, isolated eosinophilic infiltration of the esophagus; it is associated with sepsis and central giant cell granuloma.
Diagnosis and treatment of eosinophilic esophagitis
Eosinophilic esophagitis is a newer disease entity that has been diagnosed with increasing frequency over the past 10 years. Patients present with a variety of symptoms including vomiting, failure to
Eosinophilic oesophagitis and coeliac disease: is there an association?
TLDR
Despite only a partial adherence to the diet, the iron deficiency anaemia resolved and the patient was started on a systemic corticosteroid with resolution of dysphagia and of the oesophageal stenosis.
Eosinophilic esophagitis: the newest esophageal inflammatory disease
TLDR
No pathognomonic features have been identified for EoE and its diagnosis must be made on both clinical and histological grounds, so effective treatments rely on steroids and dietary exclusions.
The pharyngeal mucosa is not involved in eosinophilic oesophagitis
TLDR
Food‐ or aeroallergens have been suggested to be the cause of eosinophilic oesophagitis; however, as these allergens pass through the pharynx sharing the same squamous cell epithelium, eosInophilic infiltration could be expected also here.
Celiac Disease and Eosinophilic Esophagitis: A True Association
TLDR
The prevalence of EE in this cohort of children diagnosed with CD is at least 4%.
Pathogenesis, clinical manifestations, and diagnosis of eosinophilic esophagitis
TLDR
When the gastrointestinal eosinophilia is limited to the esophagus, is accompanied by characteristic symptoms, and other causes of eos inophilia have been ruled out, it is termed eoE, and many prefer the abbreviation "EoE".
Co-occurrence of eosinophilic esophagitis and potential/probable celiac disease in an adult cohort: a possible association with implications for clinical practice.
TLDR
An adult cohort with eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) and evidence of celiac disease (CD) is described and a change in diagnostic practice is proposed to better characterize these conditions, and studies are needed to elucidate mechanisms linking EoE and CD.

The histopathology of coeliac disease: time for a standardized report scheme for pathologists.
TLDR
The most important histological differential diagnoses are given, as well as a definition of the different clinical forms of coeliac disease such as symptomatic, silent, latent, potential, treated and refractory coeliasis.
Cow's milk protein-induced eosinophilic esophagitis in a child with gluten-sensitive enteropathy.
TLDR
A child with characteristic findings of EE and GSE is evaluated, an association that, to the authors' knowledge, has not been previously reported and is the basis for this case report.
Association of Schatzki Ring With Eosinophilic Esophagitis in Children
TLDR
Eosinophilic esophagitis may play a role in the pathogenesis of some patients with SR, and grossly apparent mucosal features associated with EE were significantly more common in those with EE.
Eosinophilic esophagitis in children: immunopathological analysis and response to fluticasone propionate.
TLDR
EE is characterized by immunologically active esophageal mucosa and FP, not DR, effectively relieves symptoms, and FP significantly reduces mucosal inflammation associated with EE.
Eosinophilic esophagitis.
TLDR
A variety of therapeutic approaches including acid suppression, dietary modifications, topical corticosteroids and endoscopic dilation can be used alone or in combination for the therapy of eosinophilic esophagitis.
A prospective study of the incidence of childhood celiac disease.
TLDR
C celiac disease may affect 0.9% of Denver children by 5 years of age, and children positive for the HLA-DR3 allele and females appear to be at increased risk.
Idiopathic eosinophilic esophagitis is associated with a T(H)2-type allergic inflammatory response.
TLDR
IEE is a selective inflammatory response of the esophagus, and T cells, IL-5, eosinophils, and IgE-mediated mechanisms appear to be involved, giving rise to the possibility that allergic reactions might play a role in the pathogenesis of the disease.
Eosinophilic esophagitis: it's not just kid's stuff.
TLDR
A review of eosinophilic esophagitis, thought to occur primarily in children, a significant body of evidence suggests EE affects adults as well, and investigates the immunopathology and pathogenesis of this condition.
Severity of Esophageal Eosinophilia Predicts Response to Conventional Gastroesophageal Reflux Therapy
TLDR
The number of eosinophils has a predictive value of treatment response with ≥7 per high power field offering a valuable clinical threshold for predicting outcome of conventional therapy.
Prevalence of celiac disease in at-risk and not-at-risk groups in the United States: a large multicenter study.
TLDR
The results suggest that CD occurs frequently not only in patients with gastrointestinal symptoms, but also in first- and second-degree relatives and patients with numerous common disorders even in the absence of gastrointestinal symptoms.
