Abstract

Over the last decade, treatment plans for eosinophilic esophagitis included the use of elemental formula, elimination diets, systemic corticosteroids, and the gavage of aerosolized steroids. Except for one placebo-controlled blinded prospective study, most decision making has been based on retrospective or uncontrolled studies and clinical experience. In this article, three authors from diverse backgrounds combine their resources to propose treatment paths with justification based on their clinical experience and interpretation of the literature.
