Eosinophilic esophagitis, or EoE, is an allergic condition that affects the esophagus, the “food tube” connecting the mouth to the stomach. People with EoE have high levels of eosinophils in the esophageal tissue. Eosinophils, a type of white blood cell, can cause inflammation in the esophagus. This inflammation can cause difficulty swallowing or cause food becoming stuck in the esophagus (impaction)1.
