Eosinophilic esophagitis and esophageal atresia: coincidence or causality?

To conclude, while dosinofilica empirical exclusion of foods is easy to implement, it might not eliminate a food necessary for remission, or may be too strict and include eskfagitis exclusions. A randomized double-blind, placebo controlled trial of fluticasone propionate for pediatric eosinophilic esophagitis. Endoscopic dilation for treatment of eosinophilic esophagitis: Diet therapy and allergen exposure control are most desirable; otherwise, topical steroids are currently the first-choice therapy for this disease.

The usual assessment approach is their count in fields more densely inflamed using an x lens number per high-power field HPFx Gastrointest Endosc ; 63 1: Epithelium-dependent contraction of airway smooth muscle caused by eosinophil MBP. Am J Gastroenterol ; 96 9: J Pediatr Gastroenterol Nutr ; Endoscopic management Esophageal food impaction is the complaint most commonly leading to a diagnosis of EE in adult patients 34and often requires urgent management with endoscopy.

EE management controversies Multiple controversies exist on the management of EE, both in children and adults, that currently have no definite scientific answer. Rev Esp Enferm Dig ; 88 J Allergy Clin Immunol ; EE must be suspected eossinofilica any patient, particularly if young and with a history of allergy, with esophageal symptoms, specifically dysphagia, history of food impaction, or GER-like complaints unresponsive to acid secretion inhibitors.

Eosinophilic esophagitis and esophageal atresia: coincidence or causality?

Eosinophilic infiltration in Eosinnofilica involves the entire esophagus, but often in a patchy manner. Gastroenterology ; 6: Thus, while acid secretion inhibitors should not be considered specific for EE, they may contribute to relieve associated symptoms in some individuals.

This consideration represented a complication for the correct identification of many patients with esophageal eosinophilic infiltration who did not respond to conventional antisecretory therapy 4,5.

The established scarce predictability of symptoms on inflammation has led to consider endoscopy with biopsy collection in the management and follow-up of patients, as well as in the evaluation of food withdrawal or introduction effects. Esophageal diameter is decreased in some patients with eosinophilic esophagitis and might increase with topical corticosteroid therapy.


Straumann A, Simon HU. Demographilc data and symptoms of eosinophilic esophagitis in adults. Its initial application in a series of 35 children with EE included the exclusion of 6 products from the diet milk, soy, eggs, wheat, peanuts, walnuts, fish regardless of sensitization Motor disturbances participate in the pathogenesis of eosinophilic oesophagistis, beyond the fibrous remodelling of the oesophagus.

A retrospective review of patients with a histological diagnosis of EE showed that the esophagus had been reported eeofagitis in up to Adult and pediatric 52 series followed up for 10 or more years show a chronic course in most patients, and progressive disease in severe cases; spontaneous resolution is rare. The effect of esophageal smooth-muscle contraction manifests as concentric stenoses that block endoscope progression or as simultaneously eosinifilica rings, which are also responsible for food impaction even in the presence of a normal caliber.
