Management of esophageal dysfunction must be addressed in order to optimize swallow function and, often, patient perception of function. Increased presentation of eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) has been identified in patients across the lifespan. This article expounds upon the clinical manifestation, diagnostic indicators, and treatment management of EoE. Researchers are currently exploring treatments commonly found in the pediatric literature and finding them to possibly have positive outcomes with the adult population.
