Learning more : A recent publication in the journal of allergy and clinical immunology described a subset of patients with eosinophilic esophagitis who have connective tissue disease. Musculoskeletal pain and hypermobility of the joints were described in these patients. We hope to learn more and more is further research gives us more answers.
