Getting the Diagnosis Right Early: Clinical Pearls for Identifying EoE in Children and Adults

Program Overview

This 15-minute infographic-based educational activity will be augmented by patient and clinician videos, in addition to an interactive approach to cover diagnostic approaches to detect EoE early.

The significant burden of disease and increasing incidence and prevalence of eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) in the United States require that several knowledge and practice gaps among clinicians involved in the care of affected patients be addressed; diagnostic delays continue to present a challenge to the timely management of EoE.

Agenda

  1. Incidence, prevalence, and underlying pathophysiology of EoE
  2. Symptomatology and natural history of EoE
  3. Diagnostic strategies for patients with a high index of suspicion for EoE
  4. Challenges associated with diagnosis and consequences of diagnostic delay
