Answer

Answer

An increased prevalence of EoE has been observed in patients with celiac disease. [38, 39] An inverse relationship has been reported between the prevalence of Helicobacter pylori infection and esophageal eosinophilia. [40] Climate has been found to affect EoE prevalence. A recent study by Hurrell et al reported that EoE is most prevalent in the cold and arid zones. [7]
