Description

Summary

Eosinophilic esophagitis

Official Title

A Pilot Study of Somatization, Anxiety and Sleep Disorders in Pediatric Patients With Eosinophilic Esophagitis

Details

In order to decrease disease burden and the perception of disease burden, investigators need to understand the symptoms and severity of anxiety, disordered sleep, and somatization and how these parameters align with symptoms and quality of life in pediatric EoE. To assess the burden of these parameters in children with EoE, investigators will conduct a single center pilot study of 60 children with EoE using validated indexes for anxiety (state trait anxiety inventory for children), somatization (children's somatization inventory), sleep (pediatric sleep questionnaire), coping (Connor-Davidson Resilience Score) symptoms (PEESSv2.0), and quality of life (PedsQL-EoE).
