Abstract: Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) are the two most common diseases causing inflammation of the esophagus, namely, esophagitis. GERD and EoE are different in many aspects, but shares histological similarities and may overlap in symptomatology. Aims: The overall aim of this thesis was to investigate and compare different aspects of GERD and EoE including the pathophysiology, with a focus on bacteriology, and symptomatology. The esophageal bacteriologic... more
