KISS - Eosinophilic Oesophagitis

KISS - Eosinophilic Oesophagitis

When is reflux not reflux? Eosinophilic oesophagitis is a chronic, allergen-driven, immune-mediated disease that was only discovered as a clinical entity around 20 years ago. While it may initially present in a similar way to GORD, the cause and treatment are very different. It is important to consider the possibility of this diagnosis, particularly in patients with a history of allergic disease.

This KISS explores the clinical and pathological features of this fascinating condition and discusses the approach to diagnosis and management based on latest evidence. Download the KISS here.
