oa Current Allergy & Clinical Immunology - Eosinophilic oesophagitis in children : management options for inducing and maintaining disease control : guest review

Volume 29, Issue 3
  • ISSN : 1609-3607



Over the past decade the incidence of eosinophilic oesophagitis (EoE) has risen significantly and has become a common condition seen in paediatric gastroenterology centres around the world. The association with atopic disease is well known, and treatment options remain concentrated on acid suppression, dietary eliminations and topical corticosteroids. One of the greatest challenges is planning long-term disease management. Currently there is little published data on maintenance treatment for EoE in children. Many children remain on long-term elimination diets or topical steroids and undergo multiple repeat endoscopies. Large multicentre studies are required to gain a better understanding of this challenging condition, to standardise maintenance treatment and to find better methods for reliable disease surveillance.
