Familial dysphagia: eosinophilic esophagitis

77-78

María del Mar Díaz Alcázar, Adelina García Robles, Francisco Javier Casado Caballero,

We present a family with several cases of eosinophilic esophagitis. Some cases of eosinophilic esophagitis in the same family have been previously described. Patients with eosinophilic esophagitis present frequently atopy, and atopy has a strong family association due to complex interactions between genetic and environment. However, eosinophilic esophagitis has a stronger genetic component than other atopic diseases. Eosinophilic esophagitis has been linked to variations in genes like eotaxin-3, TSLP and its receptor and CAPN14, although the inheritance pattern has not yet well defined.
