Eosinophilic Esophagitis: An Update Part 1: Diagnosis and Endoscopic Recognition of Eosinophilic Esophagitis

In this first of a two-part video, Gary Falk, MD, MS, of Penn Gastroenterology discusses the diagnosis and recognition of EoE, including its distinction from esophageal eosinophilia, a separate and distinct disorder, and its clinical presentation.
