It may be difficult to recognize the signs of Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EE or EoE), in part because this GI condition has been underrecongized by the general public as well as by doctors. The good news is that allergists, gastroenterologists, pediatricians, and other physicians have become increasingly familiar with EE, so there is less misdiagnosis and less delay before a correct diagnosis of eosinophilic esophagitis is established.
Eosinophilic esophagitis can begin at any age beginning from infancy through adolescence to adulthood. This disease can have different symptoms depending on the age of the patient.
In addition, there are also many who have no symptoms of eosinophilic esophagitis, but were diagnosed incidentally while having an endoscopy and biopsy for unrelated reasons.
