ON DEMAND EGIDs: Beyond the Esophagus
Eosinophilic Gastrointestinal Disorders (EGID) are a collection of chronic inflammatory diseases including Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE), Eosinophilic Gastritis (EG) Eosinophilic Gastroenteritis (EGE), and Eosinophilic Colitis (EC). Among the EGIDs, EoE has become an increasingly recognized and studied condition. Validated metrics have been established to quantify quality of life, symptoms, histologic and endoscopic findings. In addition, there are well-established, effective treatments. The same cannot be said for EG, EGE, or EC, which lacks well established histologic criteria for diagnosis, and has a more unclear natural history, nor well-established treatments.
EGIDs: Beyond the Esophagus will bring to light the latest on non-EoE EGID, including the signs and symptoms; the criteria to make a diagnosis; what options exist for therapy, and the potential mechanisms of disease.
