Abstract

There are several treatment options available for patients who have eosinophilic esophagitis (EE). These options include dilatation for mechanical esophageal abnormalities, pharmacologic therapy, and dietary management. Providing the appropriate therapy depends on the significance of clinical symptoms, association of abnormal anatomy, and histologic involvement of underlying the esophageal tissue. This article focuses on the pharmacotherapy of EE.
