Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is conceptualised as a chronic antigen driven disease, whereby food and/or aeroallergens stimulate an eosinophil-rich infiltrate in the esophagus that produces the clinical syndrome of dysphagia, feeding difficulties (in young children) and food bolus obstruction(1, 2). EoE was first recognised as a distinct clinical entity only recently, in 1993(2). The epidemiology, basic scientific and clinico-pathological data are hence somewhat limited, and to date the most cleary defined risk factors for EoE are gender (male predominance) race (mainly a disease of white Caucasians) and atopy (elevated serum IgE to common aeroallergens and other allergic conditions (asthma, seasonal rhinitis and atopic dermatitis)).
