ABSTRACT
The article presents the case study of a 52-year-old woman who suffers dysphagia. It notes that eosinophilic esophagitis (EE) presents esophageal inflammation with epithelial proliferative changes and mucosal eosinophilia. It points out that EE is associated with asthma, rhinitis, and atopic dermatitis. It concludes that a detailed history from patients with dysphagia is necessary for determining their symptoms.
