Dysphagia is the most troublesome symptom of eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE). This study aimed to investigate oropharyngeal dysphagia in children with EoE and possible related factors. Children with a definite diagnosis of EoE were included in the study. Medical and feeding histories were recorded. A disease control level was determined for each child. An oral structure examination, the Turkish version of the Mastication and Observation Evaluation (T-MOE), the Pediatric version of the Eating Assessment Tool-10 (PEDI-EAT-10) and the 3-oz water swallow test were applied in screening for oropharyngeal dysphagia. Fifty-two children participated in the study. Oropharyngeal dysphagia took the form of abnormal swallowing (PEDI-EAT-10 score >= 4) and increased aspiration risk (PEDI- EAT-10 score >= 13) in 51.9% and 25.0% of the children, respectively. Seven children failed the 3-oz water swallow test. Abnormal swallowing and aspiration risk were significantly higher in children with prolonged mealtimes, impaired chewing function, and uncontrolled disease (p < 0.05). Chewing function was the most important risk factor for abnormal swallowing and increased aspiration (R-2 = 0.36, R-2 = 0.52, p < 0.001, respectively). Oropharyngeal dysphagia is common in children with EoE and associated with increased aspiration risk in a subpopulation. Uncontrolled disease, prolonged mealtimes, and impaired chewing function may provide clues for oropharyngeal dysphagia in EoE.
