Abstract

Objective: Eosinophilic esophagitis is a chronic inflammatory disease characterized by eosinophilic infiltration and esophagus dysfunction symptoms. Proton pump inhibitor responsive esophageal eosinophilia is similar to eosinophilic esophagitis in terms of clinical, laboratory, genetic expression profile, endoscopic and histopathological features. In this study, we aimed to share demographic features, clinical, laboratory and histopathological findings, and treatment outcomes of patient with eosinophilic esophagitis and proton pump inhibitor responsive esophageal eosinophilia.
