Eosinophilic oesophagitis (EoE) is an increasingly prevalent disease in clinical practice.

Due to the lack of consensus on the monitoring of the disease, and the rise of dietary therapies, there has been a significant increase in the number of endoscopies per patient (up to ten). At the present time, non-invasive methods are being developed that make the management of these patients a less invasive and more sustainable strategy.
