Eosinophilic Esophagitis seems to be an ever-changing disease, from patient-to-patient and from year-to-year in the same patient. Improvements in these patients’ lives have been made with the realization that elimination of dietary antigens helped with symptom relief and treatment with topical steroids assisted in eradication of esophageal eosinophils.

This case study has two very important aspects that should be emphasized. The first is the realization that it may be consistency of the steroid mixture rather than the ingredients that infer the effectiveness of the EoE treatment, and the second aspect is the willingness of the medical team to listen to the research and suggestions of the patient’s parents and applying them to the treatment plan.
