Diagnosing Eosinophilic Gastrointestinal Diseases: Criteria, Recommendations and Characterizations

Eosinophilic gastrointestinal diseases can be challenging to diagnose. The first consensus recommendations for eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) were published in 2007. These original consensus guidelines were reviewed, updated and published in 2011. Most recently, the Updated International Consensus Diagnostic Criteria for Eosinophilic Esophagitis: Proceedings of the AGREE Conference were published in 2018. The initial characterizations for eosinophilic gastritis (EoG) were published in 2014 and 2020 and for eosinophilic colitis (EoC) was published in 2022. Several members of the CCED research team contributed to these endeavors.
