Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is a chronic, immune-mediated, upper digestive disorder marked by infiltration of eosinophils into the esophagus with resultant inflammation. Lengthy diagnostic delays are common, which can result in chronic dysphagia, food impactions and, eventually, esophageal narrowing and strictures. This live symposium will feature a quickfire Q&A style discussion on the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and evidence-based management of EoE. There will also be case-based discussions to put clinical data into real-world context in order to help clinicians manage complex cases of EoE in their practices.
The goal of this activity is to improve the diagnosis and treatment of eosinophilic esophagitis.
Upon completion of this activity, participants will: Have increased knowledge regarding the [LIST] [ITEM]Differential diagnosis of EoE [ITEM]Evidence‐based treatments for EoE [/LIST] Have greater competence related to [LIST] [ITEM]Diagnosing EoE based on current guidelines and best available evidence [ITEM]Selecting treatments for EoE based on clinical features and disease severity [/LIST]
