Similar to gastrointestinal symptoms of eosinophilic esophagitis (EE), symptoms of otorhinolaryngologic disease associated with EE often are refractory to traditional treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease. Patient demographics and characteristics often are similar. Clinicians must maintain a high index of suspicion to accurately diagnose and manage airway findings related to esophagitis. Team collaboration between otolaryngologists, allergists, and gastroenterologists will assure the best treatment in this select group of predisposed patients.
