Abstract

In this paper, we will discuss the nuances of pediatric eosinophilic esophagitis based on symptoms, diagnostics and therapy. The diagnostics will include endoscopy, histology and anesthesia. Therapeutics will include the diet, drugs and 'distress'. Future directions in terms of clinical presentation and diagnostics will be discussed and important issues such as repeated exposure to anesthetic agents and effects of therapy on growth and psychological distress will be listed.
