Encopresis

A problem that children can develop due to chronic constipation. When a child has fewer bowel movements, they can be difficult to pass, causing a vicious cycle to develop.

Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE)

A chronic allergic disease of the esophagus — the tube from the mouth to the stomach — characterized by food impaction (food trapped in the esophagus), solid-food dysphagia (difficulty swallowing), and gastroesophageal reflux disease (heartburn & regurgitation).

Eosinophilic Gastrointestinal Diseases

Chronic, inflammatory diseases characterized by an elevated number of eosinophils — a type of white blood cell — in one or more areas in the digestive system.
