Answer

Answer

Esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) with biopsy confirms the diagnosis. [41, 43] Radiographic studies are not routinely performed for diagnosis of EoE owing to its low sensitivity, [2, 44]  but fluoroscopic studies may help in the setting of subtle findings and for evaluation of fibrotic remodeling changes. [43]
