I have a child who has had repeated episodes of esophagitis, and
the doctors believe it may be allergically induced because of
ecenophiles in the esophagus. However they have not ruled out
some type of immune system problem, and previously treated the
last episode with steroids. The doctor says this condition is
rare and has only been observed in the northeast corridor of the
U.S. If anyone has knowledge of other occurances and successful
treatments, as well as literature, please email me at
102605.3374 at compuserve.com. The child previously had reflux
which was corrected with a fundoplication surgery.
