Eosinophilic esophagitis is now one of the most common conditions diagnosed during the assessment of feeding problems in children and during the evaluation of dysphagia and food impaction in adults. We report a case of a 20-year-old male, with a history of asthma, who developed solid dysphagia and food impaction symptoms over a 10-year course. A late diagnosis led to incapacitating symptoms, advanced endoscopic findings, and riskier therapeutic options. Primary care providers are pivotal for timely and accurate detection of symptoms and proper referral to specialists.
