Eosinophilic esophagitis is a chronic inflammatory disorder characterized by dense eosinophilic infiltration of the esophageal mucosa. As an emerging disease during the last decade, eosinophilic esophagitis has gained increased recognition in both the medical and research communities. The pathogenesis is incompletely understood and food allergies and aeroallergens have been implicated. The most common clinical symptoms in adults are dysphagia and food impaction. We diagnosed two cases as eosinophilic esophagitis and treated them with a proton pump inhibitor and a systemic steroid. We confirmed improvements in clinical presentation and histologic findings and report these cases. (Korean J Gastrointest Endosc 2010;41:85-89)
