Overview

In 1981, Picus and Frank reported a case of a 16-year-old boy with progressive dysphagia for 1.5 years, endoscopic findings were suggestive of multiple 1-mm nodular filling defects in the esophagus in an area of stricture with dilatation above. The radiology showed a luminal narrowing, wall rigidity, and high circulating eosinophil count assumed to be a variant of eosinophilic gastroenteritis.

Historical Perspective

  • In 2003 the chronic nature of the natural history of EoE was described by Straumann et after the follow-up of 30 adults with EoE.
